Negotiations have finalised a plan which will allow fully vaccinated individuals along with children under 18 to dine indoors.

A non-physical Cabinet meeting will be held ahead of the normal weekly Cabinet meeting to facilitate the passing of the legislation through the Dáil and Seanad. According to sources, the new law will be passed to allow those who have recently recovered from Covid-19 to enter bars and restaurants.

Children under 18 will have to be accompanied by a fully vaccinated individual to be granted access to bars and restaurants.

People from Northern Ireland, UK and the US will also be allowed to dine indoors if they can present proof of being fully vaccinated.

The new law, which is an amendment of the 1947 Public Health Act, will also make reference to the role that antigen testing will play in hospitality in the coming months.

According to sources, this proposal is part of a plan that will ensure bars and restaurants will remain open from next week.

The news was welcomed by the Restaurants Association of Ireland whose CEO ‘Adrian Cummins’ stated, “We are within touching distance of reopening indoor hospitality which will allow for 180,000 employees return to work. It’s imperative we build on the progress to date over the weeks ahead.”
