‘Wet pubs’ in Northern Ireland re-open today for the first time since March

Pubs in Northern Ireland that don’t serve food can reopen today for the first time since March.

The reopening of these ‘wet’ pubs had been repeatedly delayed as governments grappled with increasing numbers of Covid-19 cases.

On Monday, alcohol-only pubs in the Republic of Ireland, outside of Dublin, were permitted to open under strict Covid-19 measures.

New Covid-19 measures were announced for Northern Ireland last night, which Arlene Foster described as a “wake up call.”

The new restrictions mean there can be no mixing of households indoors, with some exemptions, while no more than six people from two households can meet in a garden.
