Representatives of the hospitality sector will meet senior Government officials this afternoon regarding the planned resumption of indoor hospitality, following a Cabinet decision last night.
Opposition politicians are also due to be briefed this morning about the policy.
It will allow adults who are either fully vaccinated or have recovered from Covid-19 within the past six months, to go inside a restaurant or a bar with their children.
The meetings will involve officials, not ministers.
The necessary legislation could be introduced into the Oireachtas as early as today.
However, that is not certain, which partly explains why the Government can only say that indoor hospitality will resume no later than Monday 26 July rather than give a specific date.
Now that a decision to reopen has been taken by the Cabinet, representatives of the hospitality sector say they need to speedily agree with Government officials how enforcement measures, such as inspections are going to work.
The also want details on the rules governing social distancing and how the new policy will be explained to businesses and the public.
