Travel Limits Could Be Scrapped Ahead Of Schedule

Limits on how far people can travel from their homes could be scrapped ahead of schedule.

It’s due to be extended from 5 kilometres to 20 kilometres if restrictions are eased again on June 8th.

The limit may only stay in place until June 29th – and could be dropped heading into phase 3.


The Sunday Independent reports museums, galleries and hairdressers could also be allowed to re-open early.

Professor Mary Horgan, consultant in infectious diseases at Cork University Hospital, says the travel restriction has served a purpose:

There are now 24,929 confirmed cases of Covid-19 in the country.

One case was confirmed here in Clare yesterday, bringing the total number of cases in this county is 323.
