Mask rule, social distancing relaxed but vaccine pass plan remains

Social distancing in restaurants and bars ends, no change to quarantine rules

  • Fully vaccinated people alone or with one other person don't need to wear masks outdoors;
  • Two-metre social distancing rule for restaurants, bars dropped;
  • Spectators allowed for sports activities;
  • Non-frontline restaurant staff do not need to have vaccine certificate;
  • Quarantine rules will only change if immunity increases

Anyone who has received a booster will no longer need to wear a mask outdoors from Monday as long as they are in groups of two people or less, Chris Fearne has announced.

The health minister said the measure was being lifted because 70 per cent of the population will have received a third vaccine jab by the end of this week.

Social distancing in restaurants, bars and other similar venues can also return to pre-pandemic levels as vaccine certificates will be mandatory from Monday.

And spectators will be allowed to return to sports events.

However, from Monday only fully vaccinated people will be allowed to access restaurants, cafes, gyms and other public places. The full list of venues will be published in the coming days.

The vaccine certificate will only be valid for three months from the second jab or nine months from the booster.

People working in those venues, who have direct contact with clients will also have to prove their vaccine status.
