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.
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.
