Taoiseach Micheál Martin has said the new legislation on reopening indoor hospitality "flows from" public health advice in terms of prioritising those who have been vaccinated or have recovered from Covid-19.

Asked about Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan's statement that it was safer not to bring children into indoor settings, Mr Martin said the Government made a decision on "balance" that children would be permitted to dine alongside fully vaccinated parents. "One has to have a balance here in terms of how people operate and how people live their lives.

The chief medical officer will advise and Government will make decisions in terms of broader issues that Government has to consider," he added.
