Re-Opening Talks Resume

 restaurant0620
Representatives of the hospitality sector and senior Government officials will meet later today to assess how restaurants and pubs could reopen for indoor hospitality later this month.
It is understood that the discussions are focused on how the EU Digital Covid Certificate could be used to secure admission to any premises, and how the new system could be policed.
The certificates are being sent to fully vaccinated people from Monday.
It appears that the possibility of antigen testing being used to enable non-vaccinated people avail of indoor hospitality is off the table, along with the idea of a specially-designed app for smartphones.
Restaurant and bar representatives want to hear from the Government if this plan is legally sound; clarity about how it is going to operate; confirmation about the inspection system which will apply; and a guarantee that a financial package will be put in place to assist with the cost of reopening.
Another key issue will be an agreed date for reopening itself.
Nothing has yet been signed off - however, if the Cabinet approves this plan next Tuesday, it would be possible for the hospitality sector to re-stock and be ready to open on 19 July.
