Most Covid Restrictions to End

The National Public Health Emergency Team has given the green light to ending most Covid-19 public health restrictions. It is likely that only mask wearing, Covid passes for international travel and isolation when symptomatic are to remain in place. Restaurants and pubs are hoping for an immediate end to the 8pm curfew.dining
A letter from the Chief Medical Officer regarding NPHET's recommendations was sent to Government yesterday evening.
It does not contain any timeline for the lifting of Covid-19 restrictions - this leaves it to Cabinet to decide the speed at which this will happen. Government is set to announce today a timetable for when restrictions will be lifted.

Speaking on RTÉ's Prime Time, the Minister for Finance Paschal Donohoe said the Government would consider NPHET's recommendations tomorrow and a decision would then be made on any easing of restrictions. He said that it was ‘reasonable to assume’ we would be able to exit current regulations ‘at a quicker pace’.
The Restaurants Association of Ireland called on the Government to allow all hospitality businesses to trade as normal from this weekend.
The Licensed Vintners Association (LVA) said the news from NPHET has been eagerly awaited by the entire hospitality and late night sectors for a long, long time. LVA Chief Executive Donall O'Keeffe said: ‘Hopefully, the Government will now move swiftly, and there will be no delays to the full reopening and the scrapping of hospitality restrictions.'
Meanwhile, the Chief Executive of the Vintners' Federation of Ireland said its members were ready to ‘fully reopen from Friday’.
The Taoiseach said the current 8pm closing time for the hospitality sector is in place until the end of the month but said he thinks people can ‘look forward to an earlier lifting of restrictions'. However, he warned there are some elements of Covid-19 measures that may be kept, adding that there ‘could be another chapter and we need to be vigilant and mindful of that.'
