Note: In Interest Of Public Health.

Based on our public health advice and based on observations of how Omicron is ripping through the population in other countries; it has wisely and regrettably been decided, in the interest of public health, that the following restrictions be introduced with effect from tomorrow, Sunday December 19th until Sunday January 30th: –

  • All restaurants and bars, excluding takeaways or delivery services, must close at 8:00pm.
  • There should be no indoor events after 8:00pm.
  • For indoor events scheduled earlier in the day, attendance should be limited to 50% of venue capacity or 1,000 people, whichever is lower.
  • Attendance at all outdoor events should be limited to 50% of venue capacity or 5,000 people, whichever is lower.
  • Wedding receptions can take place after 8:00pm, but with a capacity limit of 100 guests.
  • Restricted movement advice for all close contacts will be enhanced. For those who have received a booster at least one week ago, they will have to restrict movement for five days and take three antigen tests.
  • For those that have not yet received a booster, they must restrict their movement for ten days. The HSE will consider the best testing regime for people in this category.
  • All people arriving into the country from overseas will be required to have an antigen or PCR test in line with their vaccination or recovery status.
  • And all passengers arriving in Ireland should now be advised to conduct antigen testing on a daily basis, for a period of five consecutive days commencing on the day of arrival.

This Christmas, please be safe, look after each other and trust in science.
