Pubs and Bars in Northern Ireland to Re-Open Earlier

After announcing an indicative date for re-opening of 20th July, First Minister, Arlene Foster, announced the date had moved to 3rd of July. The change comes after significant pressure from the tourism and hospitality industries.

From 3rd of July, pubs and bars that serve food may open, ensuring that table service is in place. Pubs that do not serve food will be allowed to sell alcohol outdoors.

Although these venues are being allowed to re-open, ministers stress that social distancing rules must be adhered to.
