Face coverings mandatory in shops and other indoor settings from today

From today it is mandatory to wear face coverings in shops, retail and other indoor settings in Ireland.

Staff must also wear face coverings unless a partition or a two-metre distance is in place between customers and staff.

People who do not wear a face covering or anyone who ignores a request to wear one can face a fine of up to €2,500 and/or up to six months imprisonment.

Other indoor facilities in which customers must now wear face coverings include hairdressers, cinemas, libraries, bingo halls and museums.
