Many Disappointed At Government's Latest Lockdown Plans

The re-opening of the country will be led by data, not dates, according to the Taoiseach.

It comes as the government roadmap for re-opening contains no promises beyond the 12th of April.
Level 5 restrictions have been extended until at least April 5th with a review before Easter.
Schools will re-open on a phased basis next week with childcare also re-opening in March.
But there will be no other changes before April.

Shop owners are frustrated a roadmap to reopen non-essential retail was not included in last night's announcement.
Retail Excellence says the lack of a plan from government for shopowners is extremely disappointing:

There’s bad news for those planning to get married. Weddings will continue to be capped at six guests until at least April 5th.

Meanwhile the Licensed Vintners Association says yesterday's announcement was a huge letdown for the hospitality industry and gave no clarity for 150,000 people in the sector who are on the PUP.
