While mask-wearing and other public health measures will remain in place in certain sectors such as retail and on public transport, most other restrictions will have been eased by the end of October.

More restrictions were eased on 6 September, with another set of restrictions set to be lifted on Monday, meaning from tomorrow there will be more activities allowed to resume.

Here's everything you can do from tomorrow as restrictions throughout the country continue to ease:

20 September

  • There will be a phased return of workers to offices on a "staggered basis".
  • The requirement to work from home will be lifted, although blended working is recommended.
  • Organised indoor group activities (sports, arts, culture, dance classes) can take place with capacity limits of 100 people (with appropriate protective measures) where all patrons are immune (fully vaccinated or recovered from Covid-19 within the previous six months), or accompanied minors (under 18).
  • Where patrons have mixed immunity status, pods of up to six participants will be permitted (excluding adult leaders/teachers). Multiple pods will be permissible subject to protective measures. The number of pods will have regard to the size of the venue and substantial social distance between individual pods.
  • Restrictions on outdoor group activities for participants will also be removed.
