Taoiseach Announces Delay In Further Easing Of Covid Restrictions

The re-opening of indoor dining has been delayed until at least the 19th of July.

It will then open to fully vaccinated people or those who've recovered from Covid - with a system for managing it being worked out over the coming weeks.

The number of people at weddings will increase from 25 to 50 on July 5th - and the number of fans at outdoor sporting events will increase from 200 to 500.

There will also be no limit on the amount of fully vaccinated people who can meet together indoors.

Taoiseach Michael Martin says the government wants to make sure that when a sector reopens, it stays open.
