Bar owners and Club owners are to be invited to a zoom meeting with a sub-committee of Cabinet next week, to discuss the terms of their re-opening.
The October 15, 2021, opening up of the economy is affirmed.
Especially important is the opening of restaurants, allowing dining-in services, commencing Friday.
All patrons entering and all staff are to be fully vaccinated.
There is a hefty fine for those individuals who are un-vaccinated but seek to be served within a restaurant; a fine is also to be levied on the restaurant for allowing the un-vaccinated to be seated.
A hotline for reporting un-vaccinated people entering bars, clubs and restaurants is to be established; eight additional CBH Inspectors, armed with printed tickets, will be on the look-out for those who may attempt to break the law.
Vigilance by the Police is also promised.
