Irish COVID related restrictions will be eased in October

Ireland plans to lift almost all of its COVID-19 pandemic restrictions beginning October 22 after reporting that more than 90 percent of its population has received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

While many nations and towns across the world are resuming lockdowns or imposing new restrictions such as mask regulations and travel bans, Ireland appears to be taking the opposite approach.

According to Reuters, the country’s staggering reopening, which began in September, would result in the final easing of practically all restrictions on October 22. Only mask mandates on public transit and mask mandates in interior business places will be in effect.

Capacity restrictions for both indoor and outdoor events, as well as vaccination requirements to enter pubs and restaurants, will be eliminated.

The country’s vaccination rollout has significantly contributed to the relaxation of limitations. As of September 3, the government of Ireland announced that more than 88 percent of adults over the age of 18 had been fully vaccinated, and about 92 percent of the population had received at least one dose.
