RESTRICTIONS EASED FOR THOSE FULLY VACCINATED
BOOSTER SHOTS AVAILABLE FROM TODAY
A couple of things to update you on this morning.
From today, anyone aged 18+ is eligible to get a third Covid-19 vaccination, or booster shot, if it's six months since your second dose.
Secondly, a raft of restrictions will be further eased today for those people who are fully vaccinated. They include:
-no limit on the number of visitors to your home (all must be fully vaccinated);
-no rules on outdoor gatherings of fewer than 1000 people;
-indoor pools re-open for all purposes;
-businesses will be able to accommodate more customers with the density rule dropped from one person per 4 square metres to one person per 2sqm;
-nightclubs will re-open;
-caps removed for settings other than gym and dance classes (where the 20-person cap remains);
-major outdoor recreation facilities such as stadiums can accommodate 100% capacity (includes theme parks and zoos, cinemas and theatres).
Please remember that these changes only apply to people who are fully vaccinated. Restrictions for people who are not will remain in place until December 15 (or earlier if the State reaches 95% fully vaxed).
Also remember that the current rules around masks remain in place. They will be totally lifted when the State hits the 95% fully vaccinated target.
