An extension of school holidays after Christmas is being suggested to decrease the risk of transmission of Covid-19.

The European Centre for Disease Control is warning of an increased risk of infection during the festive season.

In a new report, it says the risk for vulnerable people is "very high".

It comes as restaurants and pubs that serve food were allowed to reopen here yesterday.

Taoiseach Micheal Martin says he believes people will stick to the guidelines over Christmas.
