Taoiseach Micheál Martin has said that antigen testing could be used for indoor dining after the ‘first phase’ of reopening.
The first phase of reopening indoor hospitality will see only those who are fully vaccinated allowed entry.
Representatives from the hospitality sector met Government over the weekend as part of efforts to reopen indoor dining safely.
The EU Digital Green Certificate is expected to be used as an indoor dining pass.
This is in line with advice from the National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET).
Cabinet is meeting this afternoon to sign off on plans to reopen the sector.
