TOMORROW, the Government will launch its new Plan for Living with Covid-19 after conceding the existing strategy is no longer fit for purpose due to the emergence of new coronavirus variants and the introduction of the national vaccination programme.

Across Government, ministers and their advisers are playing down any expectation that the new plan will give people any clarity on when their lives will return to some form of normality. However, here is what we know so far about the plan.

Schools

The main focus of the strategy for the next five weeks is getting students back into classrooms so they can resume their education. All going according to plan, it is hoped Leaving Cert students, along with the first four years of primary school, will be sitting in classrooms from March 1.
