If tables are two metres apart there will be no time limits for customers.
Table service will only be permitted and customers will not be able to order drink or food at bars.
Pubs and restaurants will be expected to have dedicated entrances and exits while also providing sufficient ventilations. Each table will be required to give a name and telephone number of at least one person to allow for contact tracing.
The current set of guidelines will specifically apply to outdoor dining which is permitted from June 7 and indoor service for residents of hotels which will begin on June 2.
The ban on indoor dining is expected to be lifted in the first week of July.
The rules will be reviewed ahead of the resumption of indoor dining and drinking but it is not expected they will change significantly.
However, the Government is expected to come under pressure from publicans seeking to have the time limit lifted for drinking in pubs where tables are one metre apart.
