Ireland is deciding whether it should only allow those vaccinated have drinks inside pubs and restaurants. The government of Ireland says that it will be holding cabinet meetings to deliberate on this.
Ireland’s minister of transport Eamon Ryan, while addressing to journalists said that the government is considering a recommendation from the National Public Health Emergency Team suggesting that people will have to show vaccination status.
This development could result to delays in planned re-opening of indoors hospitality to give more time to develop a system to manage the changes. Ireland will be the first country in Europe to adapt such measures.
For the last 16 months, cafes, bars and restaurants across Ireland have remained in efforts of curtailing spread of the deadly virus. Also in December, the government introduced a nationwide lockdown.
Nonetheless, on June 7 the authorities lifted bans on drinking and outdoor dining in the country.
