Level Five Restrictions Extended Into Early April

Level 5 restrictions will be extended until April 5th this afternoon with construction remaining shut for another month.

Leaving Cert students, junior and senior infants long with 1st and 2nd class will return to the classroom next Monday,  5th years and the remainder of primary students will be back on March 15th. The rest of secondary school students won't be back until after Easter, on the 12th of April.
Childcare will return on a staggered basis with those on the ECCE scheme being back from March 8th and all others on March 29th. There will be no re-opening for construction next month, which some Ministers believe will lead to a housing hangover later this year.
A revised living with COVID document released later will be "nothing like" the UK's according to a cabinet source. It won't provide dates beyond April for when parts of the economy can re-open, with fears in some parts of government that it lacks a bit of hope.

There will also be an update given on the timeline for vaccinations and a review of the priority access list which is likely to lead to people with certain underlying conditions being moved up the list.
