Protocols for sit-down restaurants and hotels are expected to be set out by government.

Last week, the government gave regulations and protocols as to how personal care services like hairdressers can safely reopen. However, no mention was made about sit-down restaurants and hotels who are also allowed to reopen under advanced level 3 lockdown regulations. According to reports, it is expected that rules for sit-down restaurants and hotels are to be given some time today. There has been much speculation as to what the rules will look like and many hotel groups already have safety plans in place, but many are waiting for official confirmation before they start planning their reopening.
