UKHospitality (UKH), the British Beer and Pub Association (BBPA) and the British Institute of Innkeeping (BII) created the one-page document, which can be accessed here.
Key points from the one-page guide include:
- Social distancing applies between groups of customers (not within groups sitting at tables).
- Payment is permitted at the bar, as a last resort if payment cannot be taken outside.
- Test and trace contact details have to be taken for all customers eating and drinking outside at a venue.
A spokesperson for the trade associations, said: “Reopening of pubs and other hospitality businesses outdoors is a step forward for the full reopening of our sector.
“Safety of our staff and customers remains our top priority – as is consistent interpretation of the new rules. By referring to this handy checklist, hospitality operators can ensure they are taking the right steps to reopen outdoors.”
