Returning to school
Update 24th September 2020
Following this weeks’ announcement by Welsh Government the up to date regulations have now been published https://gov.wales/health-protection-coronavirus-restrictions-no-2-wales-amendment-no-12-regulation-2020 and came into effect at 6pm on 24th September.
These are the changes:
Table Service Only
Food or drink may only be served to customers who are seated and customers must be seated when consuming the food or drink. This applies whether customers are sat indoors or outdoors
All licensed Premises licence for sale of alcohol may not sell alcohol between 10pm and 6 am (includes both on and off sales)
On-licensed premises must close between 10.20pm and 6 am, this effectively allows for a 20min drinking up time.
There is no earlier closing time imposed on takeaway food premises. Hours in accordance with any existing Premises licence for late night refreshment still apply. Where such premises are authorised to sell alcohol they may not sell alcohol between 10pm and 6 am however.
It is now a requirement to wear a face covering in premises where food or drink is sold, but it will be a reasonable excuse for customers not to wear a face covering whilst seated. Therefore customers must wear a face mask up until the point that they are seated and also if they need to leave the table to visit the toilets , all staff should wear a face covering at all times in such premises.
In summary the below outlines the way in which an on-licensed premises (pub, restaurant, café) should be operating:
Customer(s) arrive at premises, wearing face covering. They are greeted by a member of staff at the door (wearing face covering) Track Trace, Protect protocol, completed and Extended Households confirmed. Shown to table by the same member of staff all still wearing their masks. Member of staff takes drinks order and takes order to the table. If they go to the toilet then they have to put on their masks.
Replacement drinks are ordered from the table with the same member of staff (both customer and member of staff are wearing face covering) who collects the used glasses at the same time and the drinks are supplied in new glasses. (Thereby avoiding mixing used glasses.)
Customers leave premises with face covering on TTP time of departure is noted by same member of staff. Same member of staff (face covering on) collects used glasses and cleans down table and chairs.
Premises door closed and no sale of alcohol after 10pm. Customers are encouraged to drink up and must leave by 10.20pm. No drinks are allowed to leave the premises with customers after 10pm.
