PUBS in Ireland will not now open until August 10 due to Government fears regarding the increase of Covid-19 cases.
Pubs and nightclubs were set to reopen on Monday next, July 20, but the Government has decided to put that date back by three weeks.
Monday’s planned opening was intended to be the next phase of the roadmap to reopen Ireland.
It is also expected that restrictions on crowd sizes will remain in place.
At the moment, a maximum of 50 people are allowed at indoor gatherings with 200 outdoors. This was to increase to 100 and 500 respectively on monday under the planned easing, but it is now likely that the current figures will stay until August 10.
The Government is likely to announce the mandatory wearing of face coverings in shops and indoor settings.Tags:
