New Covid measures ‘contradictory’

There is confusion over the new Covid-19 measures announced by the government yesterday evening.

Among the guidelines are the elderly being asked to limit their contacts, while indoor social visits have been reduced to six people from three households.

While all sporting events are to be played behind closed doors and Gardaí will be given new powers to police pubs, restaurants and house parties.

Sligo Fine Gael Councillor Thomas Walsh believes the message is ‘off point’ and ‘lacks focus.’

Speaking to OceanFM News, he says last nights announcements are ‘contradictory’.
