The Government is planning to reopen hairdressers and barbers in May, according to Tánaiste Leo Varadkar.
The reopening date for salons has not been set yet, but from May 4th “there’ll be a phased reopening of personal services including hairdressers and barbers”.
Speaking on RTÉ’s Morning Ireland, Mr Varadkar said Ireland is on track to have some restrictions lifted on 4 May. A plan for summer will be developed at the end of April, he said.
Mr Varadkar said the four biggest factors for restrictions are vaccines, variants, virus case numbers, and how hospitals are coping.
He added that the plan for June and July is “looking good” but “things can go wrong.”
