Nationally, 1,181 New Virus Cases As Cabinet Set To Reopen Indoor Hospitality.

Irish government Ministers are expected to agree, as early as tomorrow afternoon, to sign off on plans to reopen bars and restaurants in the Irish Republic.

The Government is hoping that this legislation will be in place, thus allowing vaccinated people only to eat and drink inside licenced hostelries and restaurants, with same being passed by the Dáil and Seanad Éireann before the end of this week.

It is then expected the Bill will be signed by President Mr Michael D. Higgins during the week beginning Monday, July 19th and before Friday, July 23rd.

We understand that the Government is also preparing for a ‘vaccine pass’ which can be scanned, assisting business owners; same who are worried about policing Covid-19 passes.
