"If We Don't Ease Restrictions Now, Then When?" Publicans Frustration Over Reopening


"If not now, then when?"

That's the question being posed by the Licensed Vintners Association, who say its members are frustrated at the lack of clarity surrounding reopening.

NPHET will meet later to discuss its advice to the Government on the easing of pandemic rules.

It comes amid a backdrop of rising covid cases, with 1,380 new cases confirmed yesterday, and 470 covid patients in hospital.

This Friday is meant to be our so called ‘Freedom Day’ with the lifting of the majority of pandemic rules.

But Donal O’Keefe from the LVA says it's time the Government "moved on" from heavy restrictions.

"We have 92% of the adult population vaccinated, if that that's not sufficient then what is?"

NIAC Meet To Discuss Booster Jabs

Meanwhile, body which advises the government on vaccines also meets today.

The National Immunisation Advisory Committee will consider rolling out Covid vaccine boosters for health workers and the over 60s.

Currently only people over 80 and those over 65 in nursing homes can avail of a third jab.
