Ministers to call for partial relaxation of restrictions next week

Ministers will press for partial easing of Covid-19 restrictions next week, which could see vaccination passports remain in effect as a requirement to enter venues and facilities.

There are growing concerns in government and among public health officials about the rising number of Covid-19 cases and the high number of patients in hospitals.

While no decision has yet been made on the next phase of the reopening on October 22, senior sources acknowledged that some measures could be paused if the situation continues to deteriorate.

One recommendation is to remove some restrictions while maintaining the requirement to show proof of vaccination before entering a job.

The government will watch the data closely this weekend before making a final decision next Monday or Tuesday.
