President Officially Signs New Legislation On Indoor Dining Into Law
It means only people who are fully vaccinated, those who have recovered from Covid and their children can eat and drink indoors.
It’s set to resume next Monday and an app is being developed to allow pubs and restaurants to check customers’ Digital Covid Certs.
Speaking on his way into Cabinet, Taoiseach Micheál Martin admitted there are risks involved with the reopening:
“We’re taking this step by step, and as I say, every setting though has risks attached to it, indoor, outdoor. It really is back to personal behaviour. We’re going to take stock in terms of the rising numbers, as I say, I met with the public health chiefs yesterday, and got an assessment from them. We have to move steadily on this and take stock now given given the increased numbers.”
