Listen: NPHET Expresses Concerns About Aspects Of Lifting Level 5 Restrictions.

: 26/11/2020 - 15:38

NPHET has expressed concern about the planned re-opening of the economy next week.

In particular, health officials have concerns about the opening of the hospitality sector.

Restaurants and pubs that serve food are due to open at some point in December - but NPHET has raised issues with this in a letter to the Health Minister.

The caution from NPHET was expected by the government.

In the Dáil, Tánaiste Leo Varadkar has said he doesn't fully accept the argument that wet-pubs should be allowed to open to avoid more house parties from happening:
