The Government is targeting July 26th as the date for reopening indoor hospitality.
Tánaiste Leo Varadkar said Government is putting regulations in place to limit access to indoor dining to those who are fully vaccinated and those who have recovered from Covid-19 within the past six months.
The Fine Gael leader said hospitality business owners will have an app which will be able to scan peoples EU digital certificate.
Last night, the Government won the vote on implementing legislation which will limit access to those who are vaccinated.
The legislation must now go through the Seanad tomorrow, before being signed off by President Higgins.
Many have criticised the Government over the legislation which excludes those who are unvaccinated from entering indoor hospitality settings.
“What we are doing here crosses a line that should not be crossed, in that we isolate, treat people differently and say to people that because of the order we have decided you will be vaccinated, we can discriminate against you,” Labour leader Alan Kelly said.
