PM Boris Johnson is due to set out his ‘roadmap’ out of lockdown on Monday 22nd February. In advance of this, trade association UKHospitality have set out their own proposed roadmap for the phased reopening of hospitality venues. UKHospitality have long been calling on the government to recognise the measures in place which can allow for a safe reopening of the sector. Hospitality as an industry saw a loss of £72bn in sales during 2020, as well as thousands of job losses and businesses forced to close for good.
Here’s the 10 key points of UKHospitality’s roadmap to recovery:
1. Focus on reducing infections, hospitalisations and deaths
2. Link hospitality reopening to vaccines and the preservation of life
3. Recognise the safety of hospitality
4. Set clear reopening ambitions on 22nd February
5. Begin gradual regional reopening once top-4 priority groups are protected
6. A time-limited transitionary system from early April
7. Revert to a national system of controls from mid-June
8. Explore a safe way to open up international travel
9. Foster consumer confidence and a return to our great cities
10. Underpin the recovery with business support
It will no doubt be interesting to see how the PM’s future plans align with those proposed by UKHospitality. For the full details of this 10-point plan and UKHospitality’s proposed roadmap out of lockdown, visit their website.
