The legal requirement to wear face masks in some public locations across the Republic of Ireland have been removed.

This means the Irish public will no longer have to wear face coverings in shops, schools, on public transport, and in other indoor areas. This also includes the staff in hospitality settings.

The requirements have now been replaced with public health advice, with guidance recommending that the public should remain cautious and preferably wear masks whilst using public transport and in healthcare settings.

In addition, social distancing measures have been lifted whilst public tracing has been scaled back.

Ireland’s Citizens Information advice remains, however, that those who test positive for Covid—19 must isolate for seven days and wear a facemask.
