Industry trade body, UKHospitality has published its own set of Covid-19 secure guidelines to help support the safe reopening of hospitality venues.
The trade body has been working with members and others to draw up protocols tailored to individual sub-sectors, covering; accommodation, coffee shops, food service management, holiday parks, late night, pubs, quick-service restaurants and visitor attractions.
The suite of documents provides guidance for businesses to devise their own bespoke plans tailored to individual sites, emphasising safe reopening.
UKHospitality chief executive Kate Nicholls said: “The size and diversity of the hospitality sector means that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to reopening. Across our industry there are many sub-sectors and widely different businesses models. The practical challenges in reopening faced by a pub or a bar will be different from those faced by a holiday park, for instance. Even within the same sector, there is bound to be a huge difference in the size, shape, location and layout of outwardly similar businesses.
“We have been working hard with our members and alongside other industry bodies to provide practical and effective protocols which will enable businesses to begin to reopen safely when the time is right.”
