  • Minister for Rural and Community Development Michael Ring has called for a tweaking of the Covid-19 regulations to allow people in rural areas travel further from home than those in urban areas.
  • Mr Ring condemned banks and public services which attempted to use the Covid-19 pandemic as an excuse to shut down or restrict services.
  • The Government meets on Thursday to decide on further easing of restrictions next week including extending to 20km the distance people are allowed to travel from their home.
