COVID-19 restrictions to be eased slightly from tomorrow

Covid-19 restrictions in Ireland are set to be eased slightly tomorrow, after over three months at Level 5 restrictions.

The biggest change will be to travel restrictions, with people set to be able to travel within their own county for non-essential purposes.

The 5km rule, which has been in place for months, will now be relaxed.

Some small social gatherings will also be allowed, with two households being permitted to meet up outside for recreational purposes. This was previously limited to exercise alone, and indoor visits are still not permitted.

The new regulations also state that while gatherings should take place outdoors, they shouldn’t take place within private gardens and that social distancing should be observed by the two households.
