After delivering the results of our BII Coronavirus Impact Members' Survey to the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) throughout lockdown, the Government have now released guidelines set to help you reopen your pub with safety of customers and staff in mind. 

Drinks giant Diageo is investing $100M in a global recovery fund to help pubs and bars recover from the effects of the pandemic. The Raising the Bar fund in the UK will provide free ‘hygiene kits’ with high-quality permanent sanitiser dispense units, medical grade hand sanitiser and a range of personal protection equipment (such as masks and gloves) as well as help for pubs and bars to establish partnerships with online reservations and cashless systems, mobile bars and outdoor equipment.
