Some essential retail operations will be permitted to operate outside normal hours for the duration of the Covid-19 pandemic. Examples would be restaurants operating as takeaways and childcare facilities that may need to be reopened at significantly reduced capacity but outside of normal hours, for example, to accommodate the children of HSE front-line staff.
The position of Insurance Ireland members for the duration of the Covid-19 pandemic is that there are no insurance implications here. Insurance Ireland members will be flexible in this area. We would simply advise that the essential retail operation should inform their insurer or broker beforehand.
