UK nightclub bosses stand firm against NHS PASS guidance

Nightclub bosses throughout the UK are making a stand against Government NHS PASS advice and will be turning their backs on the plans.

Boris Johnson has labelled clubs participation in the programme a “matter of social responsibility.”

Industry nightlife figureheads and club venue decision-makers have said they will ignore the new government advice to require a ‘COVID PASS’ before allowing partygoers in their establishments next week.

Earlier this week, the Prime Minister urged festival and nightlife industries to ensure individuals provided proof of a negative test or that they have been double jabbed.

The data and proof will be available on the NHS COVID app on freedom day – July the 19th.

Although Johnson has branded the scheme as a “matter of social responsibility,” no legal requirement has yet been put in place.

In the days since, the government has announced the advice online that “reserves the right to force venues to comply” – raising eyebrows within the sector.

Rekom UK was one the first to announce that they would not be implementing the new guidance. Rekom owns 42 venues nationwide and has stated that their venues will be open at maximum capacity – with no need to show a COVID PASS.

The Netherlands recently closed the nightlife sector once more after only reopening a few short weeks ago after a rapid rise in COVID cases; many fear that the UK is on a similar trajectory.
