Around 50,000 construction workers will have to down tools for the month under the Government’s new restrictions.

Meanwhile, only essential construction projects and refurbishments are to be permitted until the end of the month under new coronavirus restrictions to be discussed by Cabinet.

The majority of private construction developments are to be halted until the end to the month as part of a plan to stop the rapid spread of Covid-19.

All travellers flying into Ireland will soon be required to produce a negative Covid-19 test on arrival.

The new rules will require anyone flying into Ireland to produce a negative PCR test result received within three days before arrival.

The move comes against a backdrop of increasing coronavirus cases in Ireland.

The ban on flights and passenger ferries from Britain and South Africa will also be extended until midnight on Friday.

From Saturday anyone travelling to Ireland from Britain or South Africa will be required to produce a negative laboratory test received within three days before travel.

They will also be required to restrict their movements for 14 days on arrival.

A date has not been yet set for when all travellers flying into Ireland will be required to produce negative test results on arrival.

Shops will also be told to stop offering click and collect services and will instead be asked to offer only click and delivery.
