The government has decided to delay making a decision on Covid restrictions for Dublin until next week.
Yesterday the National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET) proposed a further reduction on numbers gathering in other people’s homes.
A decision on what measures, if any, should be implemented for Dublin will not be made until Tuesday.
With numbers in Dublin increasing day on day, NPHET have advised that gatherings here in private homes be limited to six people from two different households.
It also recommended that pubs that do not serve food should not open in Dublin on September 21 if cases continue to rise.
The government has decided not to make a decision on the way forward until next Tuesday when it plans to publish roadmap for the next six to nine months.
