The Government has published The Roadmap for Reopening Society and Business.
The broad aim of the roadmap is to ease the COVID-19 restrictions and reopen Ireland’s economy and society in a safe manner.
The roadmap sets out plans to lift the COVID-19 restrictions over the course of five three-week phases beginning on Monday 18 May.
Below are the first 3 of the 5 three-week phases and how they will impact organisations.
Phase 1 – Monday 18 May 2020
A phased return of outdoor workers will begin while remote working will continue for all workers that can do so. Certain retail operations including outdoor and homeware, opticians, motor and bicycle repair shops, office products, electrical, IT, phone sales & repair will be permitted to open subject to compliance with social distancing.
Phase 2 – Monday 8 June 2020
A limited return to onsite working activity will be permitted provided employees can comply with social distancing guidelines. Remote working continues for all that can do so. More small retail outlets will be permitted to open subject to compliance with social distancing.
Phase 3 – Monday 29 June 2020
More low interaction work will be permitted while remote working continues for all that can do so. Non-essential retail outlets with street level access will be reopened. Cafés and restaurants that serve on site will be allowed to reopen subject to compliance with social distancing and cleaning protocols.
