Applications for permits

Applications for permits

In line with the ‘unlocking the rock’ guidance, certain establishments (including gymnasiums and restaurants) are subject to a permit prior to reopening. This is granted by the Director of Public Health through the Office of Civil Contingencies.

The application form can be downloaded here and should be submitted to or accordingly.

Guidance for gyms can be read here and restaurants here.

All permit holders are required to publish a copy of their operational plans on their media platforms (should these be available) to ensure that their members and the public are advised of their restrictions.

Accepted permit applications and operating plans may also be viewed on the Public Health register, please click here for access. This is also the relevant forum for the public to raise concerns regarding operation procedures (or adherence to them).
