Earliest would be 6 o'clock news but could be as late as 9 o'clock (although you'd expect the measures to have been leaked by then).

They seem to have been softening us up already so not sure what extra they'll add. Main 'news' will be the targets they set for reducing restrictions.

The Government is understood to be preparing to move to Level 5 restrictions for six weeks, The Irish Times understands.

Ministers will be asked at a Cabinet meeting currently underway in Government Buildings to approve a return to the tightest restrictions under the Government’s living with Covid plan.

It is understood that intense negotiations between ministers and health officials resulted in a decision to seek cabinet approval for level five rather than an enhanced level four, which was under discussion yesterday.

The Government is due to announce travel restrictions as part of increased measures to combat the spread of coronavirus in Ireland, with one option being the implementation of a 10km limit for households.

The Cabinet met in Government Buildings ahead of a full Cabinet meeting at 4pm. A formal announcement of new restrictions is expected to be made around 9pm on Monday evening.

Senior sources said it is now highly likely that people will be asked to stay within 10km of their home as Ministers believe it is one of most effective restrictions for halting the spread of the virus.

The Government is also considering curbs on off-licence hours as part of the escalation in measures. A closing time of 8pm has been suggested to bring Ireland in line with existing restrictions in the North.

It is likely that the new measures will come into force in the middle of the week to give the public time to adapt.

Non-essential retail is likely to be closed again in light of the increasing number of Covid-19 cases, a move which a representatives have said would be a “massive blow” to the sector.

Senior sources said on Sunday night that the Government will agree to “Level 4-plus” restrictions for the entire country for a period of three to four weeks.

Under Level 4-plus, it is understood that only essential retail and primarily outdoor businesses are permitted to open, visitors to homes and gardens will be banned and no organised indoor gatherings will be permitted.



It is also understood that schools are likely to remain open, there will be no matches, except for elite sport, and pubs and restaurants are permitted only to serve take-away or a maximum of 15 outdoor diners.

Members of the public will also be requested to stay within county except for work/education/other essential purposes.

elite sports are going ahead thankfully, schools are open and travel is 10km from home.

What's the difference between 4+ there? Just the travel distance I think.

I can't understand how off licenses are considered essential when the likes of hardware stores have to close. They may as well grab the bull by the balls and ban booze sales (bar pub takeaway) from tonight. House party problem solved pretty quickly

Construction is closed in level 5, I think. Sounds like it won't be.

Also there was no mention about training but if it's level 5 then it's unlikely training or any other outdoor activities can take place.

Bars and restaurants were going to level 5 anyway.

They could bring in an allowance for parents. 1 unit per day per child. Means you should definitely be able to still get tanked if needed

It basically makes no difference. If you want to have a house party, you'll have your drink bought.

This is yet another political ass covering exercise, it wasn't "needed" in Phase I but now the Nordies are doing it, you have your cover there to do it.

In the grand scheme of things of this shitshow it isn't that big a deal, but just funny.

Just run slowly. That's the hardest thing. Forcing yourself to run slow for a long time and building up stamina slowly over time.

Cammy I'm sure with all that rich food consumed could do with a run.

You can rent home excercise bikes out for €100 a month. We got one at the start of this. Brought some old weights in as well.

Didn't really need it with the weather being so good but definately do now. We are shipping a Pelaton currently so hopefully it arrives soon.
