Covid-19 Restrictions – Update from Government meeting earlier today:
Ireland will not enter Phase 4 of the roadmap on reopening next Monday as health experts have recommended that the Government take a cautious approach to easing the restrictions. This evening, the Government agreed the below.
🔵 Pubs that can’t serve a substantial meal, nightclubs, casinos and hotel bars will remain closed until the 31st of August at least.
🔵 Restaurants and pubs serving food must close at 11pm each night.
🔵 Face coverings will be a legal requirement in shops and shopping centres from Monday 10th of August.
🔵 A maximum of 200 people can gather outdoors.
🔵 A maximum of 50 people can gather indoors (such as weddings).
🔵 Malta, Cyprus, Gibraltar, San Marino and Monaco have now been dropped from the Green List of countries safe to travel to for essential reasons. It remains the case that people are asked to stay in Ireland. No countries have been added to the Green List.
🔵 Passenger locator forms will go online.
🔵 There will be increased follow-up for people arriving into the country.
🔵 The Government will examine a number of additional supports for sectors that have not got back into full operation.
🔵 Direct provision residents will be treated same as any other citizen when it comes to social protection supports.
All restrictions above will be reviewed by the Government in three weeks from August 10th.
