The Scottish Hospitality Group (SHG) say staff have faced’ intolerable levels of abuse’ and some venues saw a drop in footfall of up to 40%.
The first weekend of enforcement of Scotland’s vaccine passport scheme has been an “unmitigated disaster”, according to a hospitality sector body.
The Scottish Hospitality Group (SHG) said that staff have faced “intolerable levels of abuse” and some venues saw a drop in footfall of up to 40%.
It is calling on the Scottish Government to scrap the scheme, which has been legally enforceable since October 18.
Proof of full vaccination is required to enter nightclubs and large events as part of the Scottish Government’s efforts to limit the spread of coronavirus and increase vaccine take-up.
