dc.descriptionA number of restrictive public policy measures have been introduced to limit the growing spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Ireland. These were first introduced on 12 March 2020 when the government announced the closure of schools, nurseries, and universities to prevent the spread of the virus in the country. Citizens were asked to practice social or physical distancing, and mass gatherings of 100 people in indoor areas were cancelled, while outdoor gatherings of 500 or more people were also cancelled. The measures were quickly followed by the closure of pubs and clubs. A number of additional measures were introduced on 24 March, with further restrictions announced on 28 March. These measures were extended to 12 April, before being further extended until 5 May 2020. A further extension of the restrictions was announced on 1 May until 18 May 2020.(1) Some of the more restrictive measures introduced by the Irish Government included the:  rule that everyone is required to stay at home, except in certain circumstances  closure of all theatres, clubs, gyms and leisure centres, hairdressers, betting shops, marts, markets, casinos, bingo halls, libraries, and other similar outlets  cancellation of all sporting events, including those played behind closed doors  closure of playgrounds and holiday or caravan parks  restriction on all organised social indoor or outdoor events of any size, such as parties or weddings  closure of non-essential retail outlets  everyone must exercise within a two kilometre radius of their house; extended to five kilometres from 5 May until 18 May. To limit the spread of COVID-19, governments around the world also implemented strict public policy measures, such as restricting the movement of people, banning mass gatherings, closing schools, businesses, and public amenities, and enforcing the restrictions through enhanced powers of police and armed forces. The Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA) undertook a review of the restrictive measures that have been taken internationally to limit or slow the spread of COVID-19.en_US
