A special Cabinet meeting will be held on Friday, April 30 to finalise a roadmap out of Covid-19 restrictions for May, June and July.
Ministers have confirmed that a decision on the Covid-19 plan for the summer months will be made public on Friday, April 30, and should contain details of restrictions that will be in place throughout May, June and July.
An Taoiseach Micheál Martin has already indicated that hotels and guesthouses could reopen in June when it is hoped that restrictions on inter-county travel will be eased further. Before that, personal services such as hairdressers as well as a return of non-essential retail are expected to be considered for May. Earlier today, Dublin publicans called on the Government to allow all pubs to resume outdoor service in May followed by indoor service in June.
