Two Minister Restrict Movements This Week

The Tanaiste's restricting his movements after coming into close contact with a person who tested positive for Covid-19.

Leo Varadkar says he was informed yesterday, but a subsequent test has come back as negative for the virus.
However he'll now be restricting his movements to working from home and outdoor exercise.

He’s the second member of cabinet to restrict their movements this week.

The Finance Minister is restricting his movements until the weekend after a Eurogroup colleague became a confirmed Covid-19 case.

Paschal Donohue was at the meeting in Berlin two weeks ago with his French counterpart Bruno Le Maire, who tested positive last Friday.

Mr. Donohue was already restricting his movements because he returned from Germany, which had not been added to the Green List.
