A Mayo café bistro has said they have no intention of checking if their guests are vaccinated so they can eat indoors.

Indoor dining at restaurants was due to resume this coming Monday but the Government has decided to delay indoor dining until at least July 19th due to concerns about the spread of the Delta variant of Covid 19 amid warnings of a dreaded fourth wave of the virus.

No date has been set for the actual reopening of indoor dining but one proposal which has been suggested is allowing indoor dining to resume for people who have been fully vaccinated.

A working group which included members of the hospitality industry is meeting on Monday and Taoiseach Micheál Martin has said he is open to ideas that come out of the group.

Louisburgh 74’ café bistro which is based in Louisburgh, Co. Mayo said they will not check if customers have been vaccinated even if the new rules stipulate that.

“At Louisburgh 74’ cafe bistro we will NOT be policing our guests to ensure they are vaccinated so that they can eat indoors,” the café said in a statement posted online. “It is none of our business what you decide to do with regard to your personal health. If you want to get vaccinated, get vaccinated. If you don’t, don’t. We don’t judge and we believe in personal choices.

“If the government require us to screen our customers, asking them for vaccine certs or ‘corona passes’ It won’t be happening here in 74’. Not under any circumstances am I or any of my team going to ask a personal question regarding someone’s health decision.”

The café said that when indoor dining resumes they would allow people to eat inside “free from interrogation and judgement”.

A number of pubs and restaurants have publicly announced they were breaching Covid regulations they didn’t agree with at various stages over the course of the pandemic but were visited by gardai and later agreed to adhere to the regulations.

Deputy Chief Medical officer Dr Ronan Glynn said this week that "all of the conditions are now in place for a further wave before the autumn with excess hospitalisations and deaths".
