Step 3 - COVID-19 roadmap out of lockdown from 17 May 2021
What this means for food businesses including restaurants, pubs, bars, cafes or takeaways
Indoor hospitality will re-open. Venues such as cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars and social clubs will be allowed to welcome customers indoors, however customers will have to order, eat and drink while seated (table service). As in Step 2, venues will not have to serve a substantial meal with alcoholic drinks, nor will there be a curfew.
The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Collection of Contact Details etc and Related Requirements) Regulations 2020
Businesses must comply with the Collection of Contact Details Regulations which require that you display an NHS QR code poster and request that customers and visitors check in to your premises. If individuals do not have the app, you must have a system in place to collect their name and contact details instead.
