(ANSA) - LONDON, 21 JAN - Ireland joins the neighboring United Kingdom and starting tomorrow eliminates almost all the restrictive-Covid introduced to deal with the Omicron variant, whose peak has been exceeded. The decision was announced by Taoiseach (Prime Minister) Michael Martin in a televised speech to the nation. So in this weekend, Irish pubs and restaurants are back to normal and customers will no longer be asked for the green pass. The indication of social distancing and the spiteful limits to outdoor and indoor events are also eliminated.
From Monday the indication to smart warking also ceases and there will be a gradual return to work.
It remains the obligation to wear masks at least until the end of February and for international travel the green pass will still be required, as is self-isolation for symptomatic people.
