Some of the immediate actions being taken include;

Further details on Project ACT will be announced after a period of consultation on how best to implement further changes, and how to support businesses looking to re-open safely at the appropriate time.

Fógrófar tuilleadh eolais mar gheall ar an Tionscadal ACT i ndiaidh tréimhse chomhairliúcháin maidir leis an gcaoi is fearr tuilleadh athruithe a chur i bhfeidhm, agus conas go bhféadfar tacú le gnóthais ag iarraidh ath-oscailt go sábháilte ag an am cuí.
