What Restarting Ireland Will Look Like


Since the announcement by the Taoiseach Leo Varadkar last week of the new accelerated road map for reopening the country, many people have questioned what Ireland will look like now after the impact of covid—19. Businesses are allowed to reopen once again on the 29th of June, some after over 100 days of closure. The new revisions made by the government mean that pubs that hold a restaurant license are now entitled to reopen as well as restaurants and hotels, but what will the new normal look like in these new times? Social distancing and hand sanitisation have been vital for many businesses that remained open during this time to prevent the spread of covid-19. This policy will become the new normal for all businesses and they will have to learn to adapt to these necessary changes. Many establishments will need to invest in new equipment to adhere to the guidelines that the government has issued for their returns and will need to maintain this new normal. All businesses will need to invest in social distancing essential, which we have a wide range for businesses to choose from.


With only two phase of easing restrictions left to get to a new normal, everyone is now considering what the return to work will look like. A return to work for some employees means the use of a limited public transport service and raises the debate over face coverings and masks. There is a lot of information circulating at the moment both for and against wearing face masks in a bid to stop the spread of Covid-19. Some countries have made this mandatory on all their public transport and discussions are now in place in Ireland to make this compulsory also. This would allow for an increase in the public transport services available. At Hugh Jordan we have KN95 face masks vwhich are respiratory masks designed to stop 95% of particles >0.3 microns in size. It is designed to protect the wearer.
