The hospitality industry has been through turmoil over the last few months due to Covid 19 with it being one of the hardest hit industries. With the Government announcing the closure of hotels, bars and restaurants, back in March 2020 this has collapsed many businesses. However we have patiently waited it out and gradually there is light at the end of the tunnel as the tentative date of the 4th July 2020 has been announced when we can reopen, albeit with some stipulations in place.
The two key factors that will change the way we operate will be the focus on hygiene and social distancing. So now is the time to prepare and put in place your re-opening plans.
According to The Montgomery Group Labs Consumer Perception surveys that have just been released 61% of hotel respondents wanted to see that sanitation protocols were in place. From the restaurant survey Front of House cleanliness was a strong concern followed by social distancing. One respondent was quoted saying they wanted ‘A commitment from the restaurant that training for all staff is updated re Covid 19 to include personal hygiene and safety.’
