The Dail has been suspended until Tuesday.

The entire cabinet has been told to restrict movements ahead of a COVID-19 test for the Health Minister.

The Dáil has also been suspended for the week after Stephen Donnelly began feeling unwell this afternoon.

 

This morning the cabinet met to approve the COVID-19 roadmap in Dublin Castle.

While they were in a room big enough to have social distancing, the government Ministers spent almost three hours together in a confined space.

Health Minister

This afternoon the Health Minister Stephen Donnelly began to feel unwell.

He's contacted a GP for a test and is self isolating.

The Minister was due to take a session of questions in the Dáil this evening.

Ministers do not have to self isolate but will be restricting their movements and working from home until the result of Stephen Donnelly's test.

A number of Ministers are making their way home now to start restricting their movements.
