910

The Government has announced phased easing of public health restrictions. From 12th April 2021, anglers can travel within their county or within 20km of their home if crossing county boundaries. Non-essential business is not permitted.

The Government has published a medium-term strategy Resilience and Recovery 2020-2021: Plan for Living with COVID-19. Ireland is currently at Level 5.

At Level 5, the public health risk means that you will be asked to stay at home, except for travel for essential work, education or other essential purposes, or to take exercise within your county or up to 20km from home.

During level 5 restrictions, only essential workers can travel to work.
