Holohan urges vigilance as Level 5 restrictions are lifted

Shops, gyms, hairdressers and places of worship are open again today as level 5 coronavirus restrictions are lifted across the country.

People are still being advised to work from home if they can, and not to mix with other households.

From today, there's also a recommendation to wear a face mask outdoors on busy streets.

Restaurants and pubs serving food will have to wait until Friday to welcome customers back.

Chief Medical Officer, Dr Tony Holohan, says it's important everyone keeps following public health advice as the country re-opens.............
