New guidelines for nightclubs, live events, bars and restaurants due to include multiple table bookings

New safety guidelines for nightclubs, live events, bars and restaurants will be published today.

The Taoiseach told a meeting of his party last night the guidance for venues reopening on Friday would be practical and common sense will apply.

Today's updated guidelines are expected to permit the multiple booking of tables in bars and restaurants.

It is also likely that table service will continue in bars but socially distanced queues will be allowed at bar counters.

However, people will not be able to congregate there and the move is aimed at addressing staffing shortages.

Allowing people to stand at live events could involve some limit on capacity, along with both ticketing and Covid-19 cert requirements.
