NPHET is meeting today and is expected to make recommendations, which would be considered by the new Covid-19 oversight group this afternoon.
The special Cabinet Covid-19 Sub-Committee is then scheduled to meet tomorrow.
Arising from its discussions it is likely that the Cabinet would then make a final decision later tomorrow evening.
Minister for Justice Helen McEntee has sad that if NPHET advises further Covid-19 restrictions for Dublin, the Government will respond accordingly.
Gary T writes:
If NPHET advises further restrictions the government ‘will respond accordingly’.
Therefore, why the hell do you have go through two oversight committees and a full cabinet before relaying that advice to the public?
