Reopening of indoor hospitality to be delayed for a number of weeks

The reopening of indoor hospitality is set to be put on hold for another few weeks after the National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET) gave their recommendations to Government.

NPHET held a meeting yesterday to discuss the further reopening of society from next Monday, July 5th.


They gave their recommendations to the Cabinet committee on Covid-19, who met last night at 9:30pm and held a lengthy meeting on the recommendations.

Cabinet will meet today to discuss the recommendations and make a decision on the approach to be taken for July 5th and the reopening of indoor hospitality.

It is likely that indoor hospitality will be pushed out until July 19th.


However, it is understood that NPHET has recommended that only those who are vaccinated or have recovered from Covid-19 should be allowed to enter indoor hospitality initially.
