Living with COVID-19 Medium-Term Plan

The Government’s ‘Living with COVID-19 Medium Term Plan’ is a five-level roadmap to help control the spread of COVID-19. Fáilte Ireland regularly updates the Operational Guidelines to reflect the Government’s Public Health advice as part of the Plan.

Fáilte Ireland’s top priority is supporting Ireland’s tourism and hospitality businesses to survive, re-open and recover from the catastrophic impact COVID-19 has had on our industry. This crisis is affecting every tourism business in the country and the road ahead is uncertain.
