Phase 4 deferred as Covid reproductive rate rises


Ireland will not progress to Phase 4 of the roadmap on reopening as planned next week, the Taoiseach has said.

Micheál Martin said that Cabinet has agreed that current health measures on Covid-19 should remain in place until 10 August.

Speaking at a press conference following a Cabinet meeting at Dublin Castle, Mr Martin said that the Government identified five key priority areas:

  • Face coverings must be worn in all shops and retail settings and shopping centres. Retail staff will also be required to wear them unless there is a partition in place or there is a space of 2 metres between them and customers.
  • Pubs, bars, hotel bars, nightclubs and casinos will remain closed until 10 August. Pubs currently serving food can remain open.
  • Social visits to people's homes should be limited to a max of ten people from no more than four different households.
  • Current restrictions of 50 people in indoor gatherings, 200 at outdoor gatherings is being extended until 10 August.
  • It is continuing to advise against all non-essential travel.
Regulations on face coverings in the retail sector will take some time to draft but the strong advice is for people to start obeying the guidance immediately.

The Acting Chief Medical Officer at the Department of Health, Dr Ronan Glynn, said that the reproductive rate of the coronavirus, the R number, in Ireland is now between 1.2 and 1.8.


What law makes wearing them mandatory?

Ridiculous, the way to deal with that regards all the other restrictions for so many service industries is to just serve people on the street, one at a time, it is happening anyway, whats the difference to one or two in the small shop versus you all on the street. Street vendors is the way to go, like so many supposed third world countries. The bigger shops is different, commerce will continue there due to the clientele at least for now, but its all retarded, fuck these Dolly Parton fans.
Yep street vendors is the way to go alright. Serving all sorts of delights like Bat meat.

When you walk to close to the edge of a harbor and someone says, step back you might fall. It does not mean your going to fall but by stepping back you are guaranteed not to .
To those who say they will not wear one... Get over it and your sense of self importance .it sounds juvenile

Now that sounds juvenile. I suppose it also applies to cliffs and tall buildings?

Funny how we no longer need to wear gloves to visit the supermarket.

But now we don't.

I have no problem wearing gloves but masks are big no no.

Remember when it was let's lock down the country for a couple of weeks to stop the hospitals becoming overwhelmed. Well here we are four months later. The question is what's coming after this ?
The latest NPC term they keep repeating "the covid virus is here to stay".

This bullshit could last a generation if people don't take a stand.
