This is what it will mean for pubs at every level of the government's new Covid risk-rating roadmap

'Wet pubs' in all counties bar Dublin will be able to reopen with robust protective measures in place on 21 September.

Wet pubs in Dublin will need to wait for their opportunity to open due to what the Tanaiste, Leo Varadkar, described as the "worrying situation" in the county, which has seen a rise in cases of Covid-19 in recent weeks.

The government announced its six-month plan on Tuesday morning, which outlined what will happen for various parts of society at five different risk levels.

All counties are described as currently being at Level 2, but the Taoiseach, Micheál Martin clarified that Dublin is "Level 2 with some modifications", in relation to wet pubs and also restrictions on visitors to people's homes.
