On October 22nd, the Government plans to lift the majority of remaining Covid-19 restrictions.
This will mean Covid certificates will no longer be required for entry into indoor hospitality and limits on the number of people allowed attend events will no longer be necessary.
Likewise, nightclubs will be permitted to reopen for the first time in nineteen months.
However, there will still be requirements to use face coverings in certain scenarios, such as on public transport and in shops.
Over 90% of the population over the age of sixteen in Ireland is now fully vaccinated against the disease, which is the highest vaccination uptake in Europe.
Taking this into account, should all restrictions be eased on October 22nd?
Or, should some restrictions remain in place?
