Which Pub , Restaurant , Cinema , Hotel Etc Will You Go to ?

Ask a Question

Hopefully the lockdown will end or at least ease by August/ September when everyone will have been offered the jab .

From snippets picked up from the press it seems likely that large pub chains Wetherspoons , Whitbread , Greene King are considering a requirement for some form of proof of vaccination as Saga have already done . Cineworld look almost certain to require it and Bourne Leisure (Haven and Butlins owner ) are "considering " it .

Apart from Saga nothing has been announced yet but just to be mischievous πŸ€”..... All things being equal , would you prefer to go to a Pub, Restaurant , Cinema , Holiday camp , Hotel etc that requires proof of vaccination before entry / booking ? Would you avoid such places ? Or would it make no difference ?

I would feel better knowing everyone in the place was vaccinated but from a purely selfish point of view I would be happy to go more or less anywhere once I have had both jabs, knowing I more than likely wouldn't die!

I have no objection to carrying and showing a certificate but once we're all jabbed what does it matter, the great unjabbed are only putting themselves at risk.

Unfortunately the jab/s has only 85% - 95% efficacy ( we'll have a more accurate figure as more people are vaccinated ) . It is not the 100% silver bullet .... yet .

Certainly it means we still have to take precautions and act sensibly if we wish our relative freedoms to continue .

Sadly that was also plainly obvious last year to all but the career idiots , yet half the population seemed to act as though Covid had gone away for good .

I think the vast majority will have the vaccine (after all there is no reason not to ? Unless you are a fan of some very weird websites ) .

There will always be a likelihood of being in the company of Covidiots , I think I would prefer them to be vaccinated Covidiots πŸ€”.

They haven't yet shown that the jab stops you becoming infectious , theoretically you could still be a carrier although vaccinated and protected from the disease yourself .

However from the data released so far (mainly from Israel ) it does appear that those vaccinated are far less likely to transmit it ,so very promising .

Apparently if all goes well the Spurs v Man City final in April is being earmarked as the first test of a return of spectators . Though how many and under what conditions has not been decided yet .

Similar to pubs the main concern last year was not about the safety within the venue (which had all drawn up strict guidelines) but about the the people milling around outside and cramming into public transport before and after .

They have started trials on children this week so hopefully that won't be too far away . Although the scientists and medical people keep asserting that children are not infectious . But when does a child become an adult (physically not mentally ) ? Possibly as young as 12 or 13 .

It would certainly give peace of mind to go somewhere knowing that everyone had been given the vaccine so I would be more likely to go to a place that requires it I think

I think it would help me to feel safe if vaccination certification was asked for but I’d still need to know the overall infection rate was very low. At the moment I would be happy to just go and visit National Trust Gardens with restricted numbers.

I would eventually go back to pubs and restaurants but not in no rush to go

I don’t go to any pubs or restaurants to save money. However I might go on holiday to Spain this year and would probably stay in a hotel. I only go to the Cinema through show film first if the Tickets are free. If not it is a waste of money

Between lockdowns I went to restaurants, pubs and the cinema. I personally wouldn't have an issue going back to these places when allowed. I wouldn't feel any safer if this type of restriction was implemented. As with anything people who haven't been vaccinated would find a way to get around it. Plus, after a few days of premises reopening I expect many of them would become increasingly less diligent in checking. Healthy people aged between 18-29 will likely be last to get vaccinated. This age group goes out more frequently than others. I can't see most entertainment, food and travel related businesses desperate for customers turning them away or a high percentage of this age group adhering to any restrictions. It's only in the interest of businesses that target or mainly have older customers, such as Saga, to implement this type of policy.

I agree to an extent ,which is the reason I asked the question . All these hospitality venues know which side their bread is buttered on ! Even after restrictions are eased and everyone has been offered a vaccine Covid will still be around (probably for years ) .

No venue will want to be closed down because of a Covid outbreak traced to them , even worse hit to the profits ! Perhaps they might think the best way to operate is to maybe lose a few customers by requiring proof of vaccination and maybe be able ro relax some of the regulations ?

All speculation of course and I personally think that come August with Billions vaccinated worldwide I expect very few to be refusing the jab .

There is an Indian restaurant in my district which I have been meaning to go to, and will be one of the first places I will be visiting once lockdown is lifted. They apparently do great vindaloo curries and I am looking forward to trying one. A good curry is my favourite meal. πŸ˜‹

As for requiring proof of vaccination, I wouldn't mind that at all. And I don't mind waiting to go until I have been vaccinated if needs be.
