The Health Minister says pubs and restaurants need to step up, and make sure they're asking for covid certs.
1 in 3 premises are NOT checking that people are vaccinated according to a Department of Health survey.
Use of the certs was supposed to be scrapped this Friday, but has now been extended until February.
Enforcement measures are being discussed at a meeting of the Government's Regulatory Forum this afternoon.
Minister Stephen Donnelly says hospitality businesses assured the public they would operate safely.
