COVID-19 UPDATE – STOP PRESS
Scotland – The First Minister has just announced that Glasgow, alongside Moray will have to stay in Level 3 for another week. This means pubs will not be able to serve alcohol indoors nor open after 6.00p.m. indoors, and that amusement arcades will have to stay closed.
Wales – We have been busy today getting confirmation that amusement machines can be played in pubs from Monday subject to the usual risk mitigation measures. I now have that. If any Local Council is giving you difficulty let me know. I have a confirmatory email from the Welsh Government.
Wales – Additional funding for businesses adversely affected by the pandemic has been made available by the Welsh Government this week. The eligibility criteria will be published on Monday. Hospitality supply chains were mentioned in the announcement.
