Level 5 restrictions will be partially eased in Ireland from tomorrow; schools will be active again

DUBLIN: The level 5 restrictions that have been in place in Ireland since December 30 will be partially eased from tomorrow.

While the government hopes to lift the Level 5 restrictions gradually from tomorrow until the end of May, the Department of Health has expressed concern that the continued presence of COVID-19 would stymie the government’s goals.

Permission to travel within the respective counties will be granted on April 12th. Currently people need to restrict their movements within 5 km. But those who live within the county borders are not barred from traveling to another county up to 5 Km from their place of residence.

People from two different families are allowed to meet outdoors from April 12.

Permission has been granted to resume work in the construction sector from tomorrow.

Arrangements have been made for all school students to return to school fully from tomorrow.

Government sources requested that face masks be worn at all meetings and that social distance be maintained.

Health Minister warns that illegal tactics are dangerous

Health Minister Stephen Donnelly said many travelers were entering the Republic through the Northern Irish border to avoid the mandatory quarantine. The government is aware of this technically feasible approach, but he reminded passengers that it is illegal.

Travellers arriving in Ireland from certain high-risk countries must spend 12 nights in a hotel. It will cost around €2,000 and is likely to be avoided. It is possible to violate the law in any way, but it is important to note that the law exists, the minister said.

Quarantine can be avoided by entering via Belfast, but there is a legal breach taking place there. You can run at a speed of 140 kmph if you want, but it is dangerous and illegal and will be prosecuted if caught, the minister reminded.
