Plan B Guidance for the Hospitality Sector
Several changes have come into effect following the announcement of Plan B.
From 15th December an NHS COVID pass is required for those aged 18 years or over to enter nightclubs, late-night dance venues and indoor events with 500 or more unseated attendees. This includes proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test in the last 48 hours or proof of exemption.
A toolkit with marketing resources for venues where proof of COVID status is mandatory for entry can be downloaded here.
These are now required by law for customers and staff in various indoor settings, including:
- Takeaway venues where there is no seating
- Theatres and cinemas
- Public areas in hotels where food and drink is not being consumed
Face coverings are not legally required in restaurants, pubs, bars and nightclubs although recommended in crowded indoor settings.
You can find the full Government Guidance for the hospitality sector here.
