The government has published its new roadmap for living alongside COVID.

The new plan for living with Covid-19 has five different levels of restrictions that can be deployed on a county by county basis.

The entire country has been placed into level two restrictions, though Dublin has some extra layers.

For most of the country the existing rules are being extended for three weeks, which means a maximum of 6 people from 3 other households can gather.

However, in Dublin a maximum of six people can visit your home from one household.

200 people will be allowed to attend sporting events in 25 counties, but that will be only 100 in Dublin.

Pubs across the country, with the exception of Dublin, will be allowed to reopen from September 21st.

They must follow Failte Ireland guidelines, which includes social distancing and time limits in some circumstances.

The government is also adopting the European Commission's new traffic light system for foreign travel.

Ahead of that the government will review the travel greenlist on Thursday.

The new criteria will mean countries with a COVID incident rate of less than 25 cases per 100,000 will be on the list.

That would mean countries Germany, Poland, Iceland, Lithuania, Finland and Sweden would be added to the travel list on today's figures.
