POLL: Is it necessary to delay the reopening of indoor hospitality?

With speculation suggesting that indoor hospitality will be subject to a delayed reopening, we must ask if it’s really necessary to delay the reopening of this sector.

Meetings were underway yesterday where NPHET discussed the reopening of indoor hospitality, which is scheduled to reopen on the 5th of July.

-AD-

Many factors were being discussed at the meeting with the most prominent factor being NPHET’s concerns over the spread of the Delta variant. However, it’s not just as simple as delaying the reopening over the Delta variant.

The situation starts to get more complex when you consider that restaurant and pub owners across the country have expressed their concerns over a delay in the reopening and have given reasons for their concerns.

Many of these businesses have to prepare in advance for a reopening by ordering kegs and food.

-AD-

Owners are concerned that a lot of food will go to waste if the reopening is delayed as well as the risk of losing thousands of euros over cancelled bookings.

As the meeting took place yesterday, the government may be able to make a decision today.
