COVID-19: Clubs, pubs and restaurants close across Waterford City with immediate effect
Several clubs, pubs and restaurants across Waterford City closed from 7pm tonight after the Causeway Group shut its venues with immediate effect due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The venues under its control include Factory Nightclub, Sinnotts Late Bar, The Lounge, The Woodman, Masons, Sands Hotel, Greenway Hotel, Arlington Lodge, The Shanty and the Terrace Bar, and The Vault, and all are now shut.
“This is a tough time for everyone, not only the hospitality industry, but if we want to make an effective contribution to the stemming of this virus, these are the tough decisions that have to be made,” Neill Kelly of the Causeway Group told WLR.
“Many of our venues can accommodate significantly more than 100 people and even though we had been taking all sanitisation precautions, we ultimately felt that the safest thing to do for all our staff and for our customers was to close the doors until further notice.”
