Industry Briefing To-Day

Representatives of the hospitality sector will meet senior Government officials this afternoon regarding the planned resumption of indoor hospitality, following a Cabinet decisionoutdoorcafe0620 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.
