Ireland, like neighboring England, has lifted most of the restrictions imposed to counter the spread of the Omicron variant of the covid. From today pubs and restaurants will be able to remain open after 8 pm and the green pass will no longer be necessary to access the dining, entertainment and leisure areas. There will no longer be audience limits on live and sporting events. From Monday, workers will also return to offices on a staggered basis, while protective measures will remain in place in primary and secondary schools at least until the end of February. Remains only a small number of restrictions, including the obligation to wear masks in environments such as shops, schools and public transport, self-isolation and the use of the green pass for international travel.
In a televised speech, Prime Minister Michael Martin told the nation that it is “time to be ourselves again”. Martin warned that the coronavirus pandemic is not over, adding that “spring is coming. I don’t know if I’ve ever waited for it as long as this.”
