Coronavirus: NI hotels to reopen on 20 July
Jun. 01, 2020
Hotels in Northern Ireland will be allowed to reopen on 20 July.
The Northern Ireland Executive has confirmed the move as part of the relaxation of coronavirus lockdown restrictions.
It has been welcomed by the Northern Ireland Hotel Federation (NIHF) as a "step forward for the industry".
In May, the government in the Republic of Ireland confirmed its hotels will also reopen on 20 July.
NIHF chief executive Janice Gault said the federation has been working closely with industry colleagues to ensure that businesses can open in a safe and secure manner.
She said more work was needed around the details of reopening and said safety was paramount.
"We will continue to work in a collaborative manner so that the visitor economy, including the hotel sector, can return to business and help restore the Northern Ireland economy," she said.
"Having an agreed date will help us to plan, promote and give businesses the opportunity to assess their viability."
