Nine month plan being established for reopening the country from Covid-19

The Government and the National Public Health Emergency Team are finalising a Covid-19 plan for the country to take us through the next nine months, the Acting Chief Medical Officer has confirmed.

Dr. Ronan Glynn revealed the plan would be published within weeks.

“We are closing the first chapter of Covid-19 and are now moving into chapter two,” he said.

Dr. Glynn also said he was optimistic that wet pubs could reopen by Christmas but said this was critically dependent on schools reopening safely and the number of Covid-19 cases remaining stable.
