Level 3 restrictions to be introduced in Donegal tonight.

Donegal will enter level three Covid-19 restrictions from midnight tonight.


Businesses in the county were given a little more than 24 hours to prepare for the change.


It will be the same restrictions as are in Dublin – including a ban on indoor dining.


However, pubs that don’t serve food will be allowed to open with outdoor service only.


Acting Chief Medical Officer, Ronan Glynn, says a high spread of Covid-19 in Derry has had an impact on Donegal:



The 14-day incidence rate of Covid-19 in one area in Donegal is the highest in the country.


The rate in Stranorlar  is 336 per 100,000 population, which the Taoiseach says is particularly concerning.


Dr Denis McCauley is a GP in the town – he says the current rate is alarming.
