In response to new restriction on movement introduced by the primer minister in reaction the COVID-19 pandemic, CAMRA national chairman Nik Antona has released the following statement:
“Pubs and breweries across the UK have risen to the challenge in the face of unprecedented levels of uncertainty while we all fight the spread of COVID-19.
“Now that we have entered a new phase of tighter restrictions, and with more businesses ordered to close, it is vital that pubs know exactly what services they can and can’t offer during this time.
“The relaxation of regulations last week, which allowed pubs to act as hot food takeaways was welcome and gave pubs a chance to survive this crisis.
“It’s our understanding that the latest measures do not stop pubs from operating as hot food takeaways and running delivery services, but it is vital the government guidance is crystal clear so that pubs can still do this, as long as all precautions and social distancing are followed.”
If your business is planning on operating these types of services, here is some official guidance on how to manage a food business if you sell products online, for takeaway or for delivery.
