THE Causeway Group of bars and restaurants, which includes Factory Nightclub, Sinnotts Late Bar, The Lounge, Masons, Sands Hotel, The Shanty, Arlington Lodge, The Coffee Vault and the Terrace Bar have decided to close all of their premises, effective from 7pm tonight.

Speaking to the Waterford News & Star, Neill Kelly of the Causeway Group said that the decision was made in the best interests of staff and customers.

“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 said. “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.”
