Indoor dining could return from the first week of July

The Government's set to announce indoor dining can return from the first week of July.

The Taoiseach will confirm the next phase of reopening society on Friday following a meeting of NPHET.

It's expected pubs and restaurants will be allowed to reduce social distancing from 2 metres to one, and there won't be a time limit on how long people can stay.

"We have been told by both the Taoiseach and the Tรกnaiste that it will not be a requirement - we have been working very hard over the last number of months to make sure that doesn't happen - everybody in Government has indicated that it won't be a factor in the equation."
