NPHET Meet Today To Consider Reopening Plans

The National Public Health Emergency Team will meet today to consider its advice to the Government on the further easing of Covid-19 restrictions from next Monday.

Business and hospitality groups are calling for clarity amid speculation the reopening of indoor hospitality could be delayed by a further 2 weeks.

There's growing concern about the rising levels of the Delta variant, which is more transmissible.

The cabinet will make its final decision over the coming days.

Chief Executive of ISME, Neil McDonnell, says the uncertainty is causing chaos:

"Tens of thousands of young hospitality workers will not come back off the PUP this week. Tens of thousands of suppliers will be called this morning by people reducing their orders or cancelling their orders and tens of thousands of hospitality businesses will be getting calls from this morning cancelling bookings from next Monday. So it's just not acceptable as far as we're concerned.
