UKHospitality has released a guide to reopening which appears as though it can be treated as Welsh Government endorsed.
The primary contents include:
As well as a template Covid-19 Secure risk assessment (p112)
This broadly follows the English guidance produced a few weeks ago, that many of you will have already seen. The fundamental principle, that premises re-opening their doors to customers’ needs to undertake a bespoke risk assessment, in order to help deliver a Covid safe experience, for staff and customers alike, does not change. To quote the document: Each business must have a full risk assessment, prepared in line with the WG and UKH Industry guidance which staff have been consulted on.
The Welsh guidance also has a few additional points, about outside opening, summarised below.
For outdoor areas only, there is additional guidance to consider. As each premises is different, you will need to risk assess your own outdoor area and operating procedures accordingly.
There is no substitute or reading the guidance, but bearing in mind that time is tight, this might help focus on the priorities between now and Monday 20 July.
