This morning, the Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly said it is too early to say if the July 5th reopening will be delayed.

The Vintners’ Federation of Ireland said the Health Ministers comments have been causing serious concern within the industry.

Leo Varadkar also said that the announcement on reopening plans will be just a week before July 5th.

The Tánaiste said the Government can only deal with the most up to date data.

NPHET will meet next Thursday to discuss the epidemiological situation in the country, as well as discussing the potential impact of the Delta variant.

Government will then make a decision from NPHET’s advice, with an announcement expected next Friday.
