Stormont ‘passing the buck’ on Covid entry checks – nightclub manager
On Sunday nightclubs will be able to reopen in Northern Ireland for the first time since the start of the pandemic. A Belfast nightclub manager has expressed concerns about having to police Covid entry checks in the absence of a mandatory passport system. Sean Duffy, general manager of Love & Death in the city centre, said he feels Stormont is “passing the buck” on to the nightclub sector ahead of the planned reopening on October 31. The Executive has advised venues to introduce their own Covid entry checks but has stopped short of bringing in a mandatory system similar to the one operating in the Irish Republic.
