The Chief Executive of the HSE Paul Reid has urged people to embrace tomorrow’s reopening of indoor hospitality safely and to “make it work”.
In a post on Twitter earlier today, Mr Reid said: “As hospitality, society and the economy opens up further, let’s all embrace it safely and make it work.”
Hospital #COVID19 numbers are rising at 123, 21 in ICU. Positively, now over 5.5M vaccines administered with 83% of adults now partially vaccinated & over 68% fully. As hospitality, society & the economy opens up further, let’s all embrace it safely and make it work. @HSELive

According to RTE News, the Government is expected to sign off on guidelines for indoor dining in pubs and restaurants today, which is set to resume from tomorrow.
Included in the guidelines, published on Friday night, was that customers will need to show their EU Digital Covid Certificate as proof that they are fully vaccinated against Covid-19 or have recently recovered from the virus.
For fully vaccinated people who have not received their cert, other proof such as the HSE vaccination card will be accepted.
Photo identification will also be required and all customers will have to give details for contact tracing.
Once inside, there will be a limit of six adults per table, no bar service and customers can only remove their masks when seated.
Children will be allowed indoors and premises must close by 11.30pm.
