Last Friday, 28 June 2021, in light of the continuing significant progress in the vaccination programme and the developing public health situation, the Government announced the next phases in the easing of public health restrictions for June and into early July.

With specific regard to the Deputy’s query and subject to maintaining progress with the virus, I am happy to confirm that, subject to the evolution of the public health situation, it is intended that indoor services in cafés, restaurants and bars will resume from 5 July for all patrons.
