New guidelines have been released for nightclubs and live events

Nightclubs have been open for a week now and new rules and guidelines have just been released.

Following the announcement last week of the reopening of the nightclubs, there has been some confusion over how they function. Taoiseach Micheál Martin said there will be more rules to follow, and some of those rules have now emerged. RTÉ political reporter Sandra Hurley tweeted some of the guidelines.

In some places bar service may work. There should be a social distance of one meter between patrons in the bar queue, with an employee overseeing the queue. For nightclubs in particular, those wishing to attend must purchase a ticket at least an hour in advance. This is to facilitate the search for contacts. There will also be no crowds surfing during the concerts!

As stated in the original announcement, Covid certificates must be presented at the entrance. A corresponding ID will also be required.

According to RTÉ News, face masks will not be required for drinking, dancing or eating. However, if you are going to the bar, waiting in line for the restroom, or entering and exiting, a face mask should be worn.

These guidelines will come into effect from Friday, October 29, 2021.
