After nearly three months in lockdown, it’s highly expected that the Government will announce a further easing of Covid-19 restrictions this afternoon.

Phase 2 of the Reopening Ireland roadmap includes the extension of the travel limit to 20k beyond a person’s home, while up to 4 people will be allowed visit another household for a short period of time.

Yesterday evening there was even reports that major retailers such as Penny’s & Ikea can reopen from Monday, while there are also rumours that children’s activates such as summer camps can resume.

Here is just some of what will be announced.

  • Those who are cocooning can have a small number of visitors to their home.
  • The visitors must wear gloves, face coverings and keep at least 2 metres away from the person who is cocooning.
  • Remote working is to continue for all workers or businesses that can currently do so.
  • Marts can be opened where social distancing can be maintained.
  • Public libraries may open so long as the numbers allowed in are limited, social distancing is observed and there is strict hand-sanitising in place for anyone who goes into the library.
  • People can take part in outdoor sporting and fitness activities, involving team sports training in small groups (but not matches).
  • ONLY where social distancing can be maintained and where there is no contact.

This morning on Dermot & Dave, Sean Defoe filled us in on what we can expect.
