Tánaiste Leo Varadkar has intimated that the reopening of pubs could be delayed beyond August 10th, confirming that pubs and nightclubs will most definitely not open any sooner than that date. This decision essentially prioritises schools, healthcare facilities and indeed the countries economy, and was not an easy decision made by government.

The Government has also wisely announced that face coverings must now be worn in all shops, retail settings and shopping centres. The immediate advice is for people to start obeying this guidance immediately, as legal regulations will take some time to draft and implement.
