CAMRA responds to new restriction on movement introduced last night
In response to new restriction on movement introduced last night, CAMRA National Chairman Nik Antona said:
“Pubs and breweries across the UK have risen to the challenge in the face of unprecedented levels of uncertainty while we all fight the spread of COVID-19.
Now that we have entered a new phase of tighter restrictions, and with more businesses ordered to close, it is vital that pubs know exactly what services they can and can’t offer during this time.
The relaxation of regulations last week, which allowed pubs to act as hot-food takeaways was welcome and gave pubs a chance to survive this crisis.
It’s our understanding that the latest measures do not stop pubs from operating as hot food takeaways and running delivery services – but it is vital the Government guidance is crystal clear so that pubs can still do this, as long as all precautions and social distancing are followed.
Through our Pulling Together campaign we will continue to provide consumers with options of how they can support pubs and breweries, as well as keeping them updated on the latest official guidance.
