Ireland to re-enter Level 5 restrictions for at least a month
Plans have been announced by the Taoiseach, Micheal Martin
Ireland will face Level 5 coronavirus restrictions for at least a month, the Taoiseach has announced.

In an address to the nation Micheal Martin described the state of the pandemic as “extremely serious”.

Rising case numbers will “deteriorate further over the coming days”, he warned as he announced the measures.

This will include a ban on visitors in private homes or gardens unless they are providing care to children or the elderly or vulnerable, or part of a support bubble.

No social or family gatherings in any setting will be permitted, with an exemption for weddings with up to six guests, and funerals with up to 10 mourners.
