Government to lift 5km rule to possibly 15km but construction is looking very unlikely to reopen from April 5th




Level 5 has been in place for three months with restrictions in place until at least April 5th.

A governmental meeting will take place today along with a NPHET meeting at 9am that will see whether or not NPHET will tell the government what they’re allowed to do.

It’s understood that NPHET are concerned with the new variant the B117 because it’s allegedly much more transmissible.

Along with that, it’s understood that the 5km rule may be extended to 15km but no inter-county travel is likely.

Construction remains very much on the brink as the government say their priority is now secondary school students returning rather than construction workers going back to work.

Tennis, Golf and possibly two households being allowed to meet outdoors is also on the agenda.
