Dedicated helpline could be set up to report venues for vaccine pass breaches – Martin

Tourism Minister Catherine Martin has stated that she wants to make it more accessible for people to report venues that don’t ask for vaccine passes to avail of indoor dining.

Currently, a similar system exists on the HSE helpline but Martin stated that you have to select “other issues” in order to report venues.

“It might be useful to tailor the helpline to allow members of the public to report specific instances in a more targeted manner.”

The Tourism Minister stated that it is something that will be communicated to the Department of Health and will also be a “subject of discussion between officials in the Department of Health, the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment and my own Department.”

She stated that venues that breach guidelines could be fined and may also face the “threat of closure”.

“We are appealing to businesses that are not checking for certificates because it is not fair to the other businesses and it is not fair for public health.”
