With the world slowly returning to normal, one of the things that a lot of people are looking forward to is socialising. One popular activity is partying at nightclubs and now, nightclubs are all the rage once more as they slowly open their doors.
In Northern Island, nightclubs have now opened fully after almost a year of closure. Although they attempted to open earlier in the year, Omicron hit which one again required closure.
Now parties are in full swing and hotspots have attracted even more customers. Yet, this does not mean that safety is guaranteed because the truth is, the virus is still out there and a lack of cautiousness would result in terrible consequences.
Many businesses fear a COVID spread in their establishments. However, they also cannot just close down until the virus is fully eradicated, as this could result in permanent closure and bankruptcy. So what can businesses, such as nightclubs, do? The solution is simple: taking extra precautions to ensure that everyone is socialising safely.
Okay, social distancing at a club may seem ridiculous. However, it is better to stay safe than sorry. Instead of making everyone dance far apart from each other, the best way to approach this is to limit the number of people on the dance floor. This way, there can be more space between each person.
If your club also has tables, it is always best to try and limit the seating per table. That way, people are not crowding one another.
Not everyone will want to get a vaccine but a lot of people will want to go out. The best policy to ensure that both vaccinated and non-vaccinated people are welcome in your club is to require non-vaccinated people to present valid negative test results upon entering the club.
How you usually cleaned your establishments before the pandemic is no longer enough. Instead, deep cleaning in between opening hours may be needed to ensure that every area is sanitised properly.
It may be difficult to do this on your own with just your staff members. You may instead try to hire professionals like Ryak Cleaning & Support Services Belfast, who offer pub, bar, and nightclub cleaning services specifically.
Party scenes will probably leave you with some buzzed customers. This could result in some unruly guests that may be hard to talk to. With that in mind, make sure you are prepared to deal with customers who may not cooperate and ensure that you have strict rules and expectations.
In case a COVID does happen or begin at your establishment, make sure that you have a contingency plan in place. Have all your staff and employees oriented on what to do and be ready for possibly another shutdown of your business that could take place. With a contingency plan, you can lessen the blow and damage.
While it is now safer to go out and socialise, there is nothing wrong with taking extra precautions to make sure everyone is safe. However, for establishments, the best way to deal with it is to prevent anything from happening by implementing strict rules and ensuring the cleanliness of your establishment before welcoming any guests.
