Roadmap Step 3

 

Government Update

Primary Guidance For Restaurants, Pubs, Bars And Takeaways Updated – The working safely during Coronavirus guidance for restaurants and pubs has been updated ahead of Step 3 on 17 May.  The main updates are to confirm what was already expected, namely that in being able to serve customers inside:

-*-Table service will be required for venues that serve alcohol, even if no alcohol is ordered, this means customers must order, be served and eat/drink while seated. If a venue does not serve alcohol, customers can order and collect food and drink from a counter. But they must consume food and drink while seated at a table.

-*-Customers will be allowed to be served in groups of 6 people or 2 households of any size indoors, or in groups of up to 30 people outdoors.

-*-As a reminder for businesses which haven’t yet reopened, and looking to erect outdoor shelters. To be considered ‘outdoors’, shelters, marquees and other structures can have a roof but need to have at least 50% of the area of their walls open at all times whilst in use.

 

Live performances, business events and soft play areas – There will also be some relaxation of rules around live performances, business events and soft play areas. Live performances and business events, should have a cap on attendance of:

  • 1,000 people or 50% of a venue’s capacity, whichever is lower – indoors
  • 4,000 people or 50% of a venue’s capacity, whichever is lower – outdoors

These events should be ticketed. Read the organised events guidance for more information on the types of event subject to these requirements. If businesses are organising a performance event, they also should read the performing arts guidance. If they’re organising a business event, they should also read the visitor economy guidance. Any events should be held in a separate room from regular food and drink customers to prevent mixing with event attendees.

Relaxation on attendance at funerals – Over the weekend the Government announced that the number of people allowed to attend funerals would be relaxed as part of Step 3. This means that, from 17 May, there will be no set limit on the number of people able to attend a funeral in England. Rather, the number of people who can attend a funeral will be determined by how many people the venue can safely accommodate with social distancing between each household. This relaxation does not apply to weddings and other life events where limits on the number of people that can attend will remain the same as set out in the Government’s roadmap.
