Cabinet set to finalise date for reopening of all pubs

The Cabinet are set to finalise a date, most likely later this month, in which all pubs can reopen.

This follows the protests that took place yesterday outside the offices of Government Ministers by publicans hoping to reopen their premises.

A decision will be made by Taoiseach Michéal Martin and ministers on when pubs that do not serve food can reopen.

The dates that are being considered range from the 14th to the 28th of September.

Draft Government guidelines, which were circulated to Vintner’s Group last weekend, are broadly the same as those introduced to pubs that do serve food.

These guidelines include, customer records, time slots being limited to one hour and 45 minutes where physical distancing cannot be maintained.

However, time slots of 105 minutes will not be required if physical distancing can be maintained.
