Covid-19 Latest Level 5 Restrictions Announced

Wed Jan 6 2021

Dear Member,

As you are aware, the entire country has moved to Level 5 of Ireland’s Plan for Living with COVID-19 and further restrictions were announced yesterday the 6th of January.

These further restrictions state that all non-essential services should remain closed. As notified previously, Brokers are deemed to provide essential services. In October the Government published a list of essential services, this list contains “Financial and legal activities” defined as “services relating to financial and legal activities… financial, insurance and banking services (including post office and credit union services) provided by a financial services provider”.

This means that you and your employees are allowed to travel to work where you are deemed to be carrying out essential services and you are unable to undertake that work remotely. Members of the public are entitled to leave home to access essential services where that access is required for essential reasons.

Please find below an outline of the new changes: 


If you have any questions in relation to the above please contact Rachel McGovern at
