Entire Irish Cabinet enters self-isolation after minister shows symptoms of coronavirus

Dublin Facing Restrictions As Covid Roadmap To Be Unveiled

This morning the cabinet met to approve the COVID-19 roadmap in Dublin Castle, with Ministers spending nearly three hours together in a confined space.

The plan has been published this afternoon (Tuesday) with entire country under level two restrictions, though Dublin has some extra layers.

For most of the country, the existing restrictions in place now are being extended for three weeks - now labeled level two.

Dublin pubs will remain shut when those outside the capital reopen next week, the Irish government said Tuesday as it unveiled new restrictions following a surge in coronavirus cases.

Spectator sport is returning under the plan being announced at the moment with some small theatre and musical events also getting the green light.

Trump to preside over historic Arab-Israel recognition deals
Air Force, an F-35 fighter jet pilot and crew prepare for a mission at Al-Dhafra Air Base in the United Arab Emirates. Kushner also said President Trump doesn't chase deals, but rather makes deals when they are ready.

Elsewhere, it's believed that the people of Dublin will be discouraged from travelling out of the city, in an attempt to contain any further spread of the virus.

Irish government ministers are to restrict their movements after the health minister on Tuesday fell ill with symptoms of COVID-19, Prime Minister Micheal Martin said.

The aim is to keep schools, creches and businesses open in as numerous scenarios as possible, with the government hoping these rules will allow people to have a life while also saving lives.

For example, weddings can have 100 people in attendance under level one, but just six people in levels four and five.

Bars, restaurants and pubs can stay open with restrictions until level three, but move to takeaway only in level four and five.
