Public Health Officials Rule Out Reopening Of 'Wet' Pubs On August 31

By Dave Simpson

Public health officials have ruled out the reopening of pubs that do not serve food, or so-called "wet" pubs, on Monday August 31.

The possible reopening of pubs that do not serve food on August 31 was considered by the National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET) at a meeting on Thursday August 27, however, as reported by The Irish Times, following the meeting, acting chief medical officer Dr. Ronan Glynn said, "We didn't feel that we could recommend today that it would be appropriate for pubs to reopen next week."

Planned To Be Considered Again In Two Weeks

The reopening of pubs that do not serve food will be considered again in two weeks along with current restrictions on indoor and outdoor gatherings. At present, indoor gatherings are restricted to no more than six people and outdoor gatherings are restricted to no more than 15 people.
