What will the new Covid restrictions look like?

A full cabinet meeting is scheduled to take place at 4pm this afternoon and new Covid-19 restrictions will be announced later tonight. At present, Cavan, Donegal and Monaghan are at Level 4 with the rest of the country at Level 3.

It’s expected the new measures will contain elements of both Level 4 and Level 5 restrictions from the Government’s ‘Living With Covid-19’ plan. Under the new measures proposed most shops are expected to close, along with amenities such as gyms, and there could be additional travel restrictions.

On Monday’s Morning Focus, Gavin Grace spoke to Group Political Correspondent for Communicorp, Sean Defoe and Sinn Féin TD for Clare, Violet Anne Wynne.
