Changes to close contact rules to be discussed

Changes to the rules for close contacts will be discussed when coalition leaders meet later.

The Taoiseach, Tanaiste and Transport Minister will consider the current Covid situation ahead of a full Cabinet meeting tomorrow.

It comes as many businesses struggle to deal with staffing shortages brought on by Omicron and record infection rates.

The number of people in hospital with the virus has also more than doubled in the past 10 days, with 804 currently receiving treatment, including 93 in ICU.

16,986 new Covid cases were confirmed yesterday.
