The Acting Chief Medical Officer has said “it’s unfortunate that the plan was published at a time at which the trajectory of the virus is changing in this country”.
Also speaking at the Global Ireland 2020 Summit, Dr Ronan Glynn, said they’ve “tried to be more nuanced and we try to be as proportionate as possible in the measures” but as part of that “it does lead to confusion”.
He said he believes the messaging is very clear: “We don’t want you to mix with any more than one other household, quite simply, now is not the time for wet bars to open in Dublin and equally if possible, and this is the nuance, this is the proportionality, we’re asking people if possible to avoid travel outside of Dublin for the coming couple of weeks”.
