Take part in The Caterer's survey on the impact of the 10pm curfew

The Caterer is asking its readers to take part in an anonymous survey about the impact of the 10pm curfew on the hospitality industry.

As pressure mounts on the government to reverse the curfew and put its trust in hospitality businesses to look after their guests, The Caterer will look to demonstrate the economic impact the policy is having on the UK's third largest employer.

Scientific evidence supporting the curfew has yet to be published and this weekend saw images of unregulated crowds drinking and dancing in the streets or descending en masse on public transport.

Operators have expressed their frustration that this should be allowed to happen when they have gone to great lengths to put in place extensive measures to keep their guests safe and maintain social distancing.

Additionally, Public Health England data suggested hospitality was responsible for just 22 of 772 acute respiratory infection outbreaks last week, with education and workplace settings as well as care homes seeing far more outbreaks.

Please take the time to complete this short survey and help The Caterer represent the industry in demonstrating the toll the curfew is taking on hospitality.
