Unvaccinated people are set to be given access to indoor dining if they get a negative Covid-19 test.
NPHET has recommended indoor service in pubs and restaurants should only be open to fully vaccinated people.
But the Business Post reports the government is expected to include a testing element with any Covid pass.
Padraig Cribben, chief executive of the Vintners Federation of Ireland, doesn’t believe the system is practical: ”What do we do if a family come up to the door, parents are vaccinated and their children are not? What do we do, tell them to come inside and leave their kids outside? There are a host of reasons we believe this isn’t workable.”
