NO MASKS REQUIRED: Hospitality’s take on the new rules
Boris Johnson has outlined a number of restrictions which are to be eased from July 19.
This includes the removal of all legal limits on the numbers meeting indoors and outdoors. The government will end the one metre-plus rule on social distancing and the legal obligation to wear a face covering including in hospitality settings.
Merseyside's hospitality industry has had an extremely difficult year, with the pandemic having caused huge hardship for many businesses.
Forced to close or operate with reduced capacity for long periods, many businesses have struggled and some have had to close their doors completely.
The restrictions which are being eased as outlined by the Prime Minister include ll venues currently closed will be allowed to reopen, including nightclubs, and there will be no legal requirement for table service in hospitality settings.
Face coverings will no longer be legally required in shops, schools, hospitality, or on public transport although guidance will be in place to suggest where people might choose to wear one, such as where you come into contact with people you don't usually meet in enclosed and crowded places.
Bucking the trend and the challenges that the hospitality industry has endured during the last 15 months, Iain Hoskins who already runs Ma Boyle’s Alehouse and Eatery has opened a new venue - Tempest on Tithebarn. £250,000 has already been invested into the project, it features a ground-floor open plan restaurant, a re-worked subterranean club and incredible open-air roof top for events, private parties, live music and more.
