To support the U.K. nightlife sector, Cox spoke with Dr. Kishan Bodalia about how getting vaccinated will help nightclubs and venues stay open after the end of September. At that time, England will begin to require proof of full vaccination for entry into such establishments.
“My whole life existence over the last 30 years has been entertaining people in small clubs, in bars and wine bars and big clubs and festivals alike,” Cox told Bodalia. “What I do, it creates a gathering of people. So that’s what I’d like to see happen more than anything, that we can basically all be safe in knowing that we’re going out to party safe and enjoy ourselves.”
“We are in a pandemic,” he continued. “This is something that we are all trying to deal with and all trying to work on and what we don’t want is the clubs to not work. At the end of the day, we are all on the frontline now. So, it’s the only thing we can do to protect ourselves, to be able to enjoy our moments.”
As of now, there are no legal requirements for patrons to present proof of COVID-19 vaccination upon entry to nightclubs. Establishments like The Cause, Corsica Studios, and Pickle Factory have already begun to implement their own policies and safety measures to limit the spread of the virus, such as temperature checks or negative testing requirements.
