Hospitality sector statutory guide
Updated: May 13, 2021
Statutory guidance for the hospitality sector was implemented on 14 August 2020. This
remains current for the next reopening phase of the sector from 26 April 2021.
As previously, it applies to businesses operating in the hospitality sector – this includes public houses, restaurants and cafes, including those where they are situated within other premises, such as hotels, visitor attractions and clubs. It applies to indoor and outdoor spaces and will be kept under review.
This statutory guidance also applies to bingo halls and casinos. However, the 1 metre physical distancing exemption only applies to the contained hospitality areas of those premises i.e. the bar, restaurant or café, otherwise these premises must operate with 2 metre physical distancing applied.
