Taoistach (Irish Prime Minister) Michael Martin has confirmed that shops in Ireland will no longer have to wear the mandatory mask from February 28 in transport and schools.
A dose recommended by Nphet
After the Irish government approved all the advice of the National Public Health Emergency Team (Nphet) on the issue, compulsory wearing of the mask would take effect in almost all settings in Ireland, Taoiseach confirmed.
From that date on, almost all of the mandatory restrictions imposed to reduce the prevalence of Kovid-19 will be waived, and wearing a mask will be mandatory in medical settings and on public transportation where physical distance is difficult to establish.
“I talked to party leaders. [le gouvernement] Take Nphet’s advice fully, “said Taoiseach.
“We are moving from the immediate phase of the Pandemic to a new phase of transition,” he said.
” People make their own decisions, and personal behavior is important here. People may feel more comfortable wearing masks, but they are not mandatory.
Employees working in the retail and hospitality sectors are no longer required to wear the mask.
The epidemic is not over yet
Thanist (Irish Deputy Prime Minister) recalls that despite the easing of restrictions linked to Kovid-19, he warned that “the pandemic is not over”.
Speaking to reporters during a trip to Tipperary, Varadkar said: “Enfet is not out of office yet, the team will fade, but it’s a body that can be put back together.”
“I do not always agree with Enfit’s advice on pandemic,” she said.
” It is important to note that the pandemic is not over and the positive rate (of the virus) is still very high; I hear every day from people I know that Kovid-19 is positive.
Varadkar said PCR tests would be primarily for “the elderly and those who are medically weak”.
Varadkar also recommended that other public health measures be taken, including hygiene measures, ventilation, and house arrest in case of symptoms.
