Ireland Set to Lift Most Pandemic Curbs in Surprise Move

Ireland is reportedly set to drop most pandemic restrictions, as concerns surrounding the omicron variant ease.

Government medical advisers proposed removing most curbs, including early closing times for bars and restaurants and the need for vaccine passes to access many indoor facilities such as gyms, local media including state broadcaster RTE reported. Mask wearing, passes for international travel and self isolation for symptomatic people are likely to be the only rules that will remain in place.
