Coronavirus: Entire country to be placed under Level 3 restrictions from midnight on Tuesday

THE ENTIRE COUNTRY will be put under Level 3 Covid-19 restrictions from midnight on Tuesday, Taoiseach Micheál Martin announced in an address yesterday evening.

The Taoiseach confirmed that the government decided not to enter further into lockdown measures by moving to Level 5. Ireland will instead enter Level 3 for a period of three weeks.

The situation will be reviewed again after this period.

Level 3 restrictions

No more than six people from no more than two households can meet in a home or garden.

No social/family gatherings should take place, aside from funerals and weddings.

There are no indoor gatherings permitted. Outdoor gatherings of up to 15 people are allowed.

People should remain in their own counties except for those who need to travel for essential reasons such as work or education.

All retail shops and shopping centres can stay open. People aged over 70 and the medically vulnerable are advised to continue to exercise personal judgement.

As part of the new measures, indoor dining in pubs and restaurants will be banned across the country.

Outdoor seating and service will be allowed outside restaurants, bars and wet pubs.

Pubs that do not serve food outside Dublin will be allowed to open but they will only be able to provide an outdoor service to a maximum of 15 people. ‘Wet’ pubs in Dublin will still remain closed.
