Operational guidelines

The tourism and hospitality sectoral guidelines, aligned with the Work Safely Protocol, have been developed collaboratively to assist businesses to apply guidance to their operations. The guidelines are informed by the latest Government public health advice and related regulations. 

Carefully tailored to specific tourism and hospitality sectors, the operational guidelines aim to support business owners and management every step of the way as they work to stabilise and recover.  

Inside each set of guidelines is comprehensive advice on re-opening and rebooting productivity, with an emphasis on protecting the safety and well-being of employers, employees and customers and helping to instil public confidence. 

The guidelines are regularly updated by Fáilte Ireland to reflect Government Public Health advice and related regulations. This includes any further guidance that is issued following work by the Health Protection Surveillance Centre & National Public Health Emergency Team on the application of the existing social distancing requirements in specific, defined and controlled environments in the hospitality industry, during periods of low incidence of the disease.
