It’s no secret that the hospitality sector has been devastated by the events of this year, with large numbers of job cuts and closures occuring amid the deepest recession on record.
A poll by the British Chambers of Commerce found that 66% of restaurants, bars and cafes reported a fall in sales between June and October – this despite the government’s Eat Out To Help Out scheme designed to support food and drink businesses, with discounts running throughout the month of August.
Now, however, local councillors in Birmingham are suggesting a new way to support hard-hit restaurants. The city is currently on very high alert in Tier 3 of the Covid-19 system, meaning hospitality venues can operate on a takeaway-only basis.
But leaders in the area have submitted a “test and dine” plan to the government that is intended to help restaurants reopen again – with diners taking a Covid-19 test just hours before eating out.
The plan has yet to be approved by the government, who haven’t responded to Birmingham council’s request yesterday. But if the idea is given the green light, it could provide a framework for dining out across the UK.
