Indoor dining may not reopen until August – Eamon Ryan

The Green Party leader Eamon Ryan has indicated that it may be August before indoor dining resumes in Ireland.

Ryan said the Irish Government will not follow the approach of England, by easing most restrictions on July 19th, but that data from the UK in the coming weeks will determine the decision.

“We’re going to get everyone vaccinated, back dining, able to socialise – it will just take a bit of time,” he said.

“It’s not going to be a huge change, it’s going to be step by step.”

The reopening of indoor hospitality was delayed by Government last Tuesday after receiving advice from the National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET).

The reopening of the sector will not reopen until July 19th at the earliest.

Also, NPHET recommended that only those who are fully vaccinated should be allowed to dine indoors.
