Monday, July 26th marks the next phase in the reopening of Ireland, with substantial changes coming from today.
Most notably, indoor hospitality for restaurants and pubs will be allowed to reopen, but only for those who can prove their immunity.
The EU Digital Covid-19 Certificate, a HSE vaccine card and a form of ID will be used as proof a person has been vaccinated or has recovered from Covid-19.
Proof of immunity will be checked at the entrance to indoor premises, and people will not be permitted to enter until they have done so.
Under-18s who are with vaccinated adults do not currently need to show proof of immunity.
The contact details of one adult will be taken for contact tracing purposes, and details must be retained for 28 days.
If a customer leaves a premises, they must notify a member of staff before doing so.
There will be no time limits for how long people can dine for, but there will be a closing time of 11:30pm.
There will be no counter service permitted, allowing for table service only.
Likewise, there will be no live music allowed.
