Ireland to Move into the Second Stage of Its Plans to Lift Coronavirus Lockdown Measures

LONDON — Ireland’s leader says it is now safe for his country to move into the second stage of its plans to lift coronavirus lockdown measures.

Leo Varadkar said Friday that groups of six can start meeting indoors or outside starting Monday. Athletes can return to training and up to 25 people can attend funerals as of that day, too. Supervised playgrounds and public libraries also will be allowed to reopen.

Varadkar sounded a note of hope, saying: “Summer is not lost, and this can be a summer of hope if we keep the virus at bay.”

He plans to move the country to Stage 3 of its restriction-easing plan from June 29, when domestic tourism, bars and restaurants will be allowed to reopen.
