Ireland is set to impose Level Three restrictions at midnight tonight following six weeks of full lockdown.
Taoiseach Micheál Martin confirmed last week that the country would be entering a modified version of Level Three according to the Living With Covid plan.
So to clear up any confusion, here's everything you need to know about December's Level Three restrictions:
Non-essential retail will be allowed to open immediately, including hairdressers and gyms.
Restaurants and gastropubs will be allowed to open with restrictive measures, but not until Friday, December 4.
Travel restrictions within your own county will be lifted immediately, but you won't be able to travel to another county for a non-essential reason until December 18, when restrictions will be eased further in the run up to Christmas.
Social and family gatherings
Pubs and restaurants
From Friday, December 4, restaurants and gastropubs (pubs that can serve a substantial meal) can open for indoor dining with restrictive measures, with a maximum of 6 people per table.
'Wet pubs' will remain closed, save for takeaway and delivery services.
Nightclubs and casinos will remain closed.
Face masks must be worn in shops and while taking public transport.
All retail shops and shopping centres can open, but with strict adherence to social distancing guidelines.
You should work from home unless it's absolutely necessary for you to attend work in person.
Stay in your county apart from work, education and other essential purposes, though this is due to change on December 18.
No indoor gatherings should take place, including business meetings, training events, conferences, events in theatres and cinemas or other arts events (excluding sport). All should be one remotely/virtually where possible.
Outdoor gatherings of up to 15 people are allowed, provided they are controlled environments with a named event organiser, owner or manager.
