Government approves revised Roadmap for Reopening Society and Business

Dear Members and Residents,

The government has today (Friday) approved a revised Roadmap for Reopening Society and Business, with most activity now being moved to Phase 3, beginning on Monday 29 June.

The acceleration of the Roadmap has been made possible thanks to the progress made by the Irish people in supressing the virus and keeping transmission levels low. The announcement is being made today to give businesses time to plan ahead of 29 June.

As the country is reopened in a controlled, measured way personal responsibility will be more important than ever. We must maintain physical distancing to the greatest extent possible, for as much time as possible, to prevent the spread of infection.

The government are asking everyone to consider four things before making a decision about doing something and all times to evaluate the risk:


The revised Phase 3 includes:

the reopening of churches and places of worship
leisure facilities
hairdressers and barber shops
all sporting activities, including close contact sports, can recommence including team leagues for adults and children. However, these sports will take place with a very limited number of spectators

Mass gatherings will be limited to 50 people indoors and 200 people outdoors. If the presence of the virus remains low, this will rise to 100 people indoors and 500 people outdoors in Phase 4

Members of the public are continuing to be advised to use a face covering (that is, a non-medical face covering) as an additional hygiene measure, when using busy public transport or when in enclosed indoor public areas such as retail outlets
