Bouncers will roam nightclub dance floors to ensure people stay socially distant when they finally reopen

BOUNCERS will roam dance floors and bars in nightclubs to ensure people stay socially distant when they finally reopen.

Peter Marks, boss of Britain’s biggest nightclub owner The Deltic Group, said staff would be “walking round keeping people apart”.

Club bosses are set to employ security staff to ensure that revellers keep their distance while on the dance floor

Mr Marks, whose group runs 65 venues, said guests would also be given temperature checks and be subject to track and trace.

He said: “We’ve been working with some scientists to come back in a risk assessed way.

“We can come back as safely as any other part of the hospitality sector.

“To me it’s illogical to allow for pubs to open when clubs can’t because we have similar issues.”

He said up to 4,000 people could lose their jobs in the industry unless clubs return soon.

Malta closed its bars and clubs this week after a spike in cases.

Italy shut clubs on Monday for three weeks after a surge.

Croatia has followed suit, imposing a ten-day shutdown.

Mr Marks denied clubs were the reason behind the spikes.

He said: “Infection rates are really small now and that’s great news.”

Club promoter Tom Hoyle said clubs were “the perfect petri dish” for Covid-19.
