The more people who have the vaccines the better, social contact will inevitably spread the virus among other people but the Government will have an assessment/threshold of risk that deems it acceptable to allow the restrictions to be lowered.”Why allow a pub to open but not allow them to sell the main products that they usually sell? Isn’t this like allowing a car sales business to open, they can sell accessories but not sell cars?”They need to tell us to stay shut until we can open restriction free and financially support us more effectively through this.”There has been NO proof given by the Government that says that pubs are a high risk of passing on infection, we understand we should close but to give us restrictions and change them about as they see fit is costing a fortune for venues for no reason.”They should allow us to open, let us make our own risk assessments and send Environmental Health to check that we are keeping the public’s health and safety a priority.”Until they allow us to open fully they need to support us better. We hear a lot about the furlough scheme and self employment scheme in the Government briefings and this keeps people’s personal finance supported, but the overheads of keeping a pub with no customers are costing us up to three times as much as the Government grants.”If we close this pub, there will be a few job losses, if a large amount of pubs close there will be a large amount of job losses, the people in these jobs will not be able to find other work in an ever reducing job market.”The Government need to either support the pubs to survive or they will have an unemployment crisis to an extent that has never been seen before.”Us opening without selling beer will destroy us, we serve food here and would probably be able to tread water for a while and meet our overheads, but although the actual building would be open and trading, the breweries who supply us and the company we rent the premises from (who sell us the alcohol as well as rent the building to us) would suffer.
