Hospitality workers have said they will be at slotxo the "mercy" of having to potentially self-isolate multiple times when restrictions end in England. Plans to lift Covid rules are expected to go ahead after 19 July. After 16 August those who are double-vaccinated will not have to self-isolate if they are in close contact of a positive case. But, Joe Cussens said until his staff get their jabs, he could still have to close his pub at short notice. Mr Cussens, the managing director of Bath Pub Company, said when restrictions are lifted his young staff will still "get pinged by the NHS Covid App left, right and centre". "Most are at the back of the queue to get jabbed, so until then we're at the mercy of the NHS app," he said. "We're going to have a staffing problem as August is a long way away." Paul Kemp, the manager of Bristol pub and food venue Beerd, said he also feared his venue would suffer if his staff were not fully jabbed sooner. He said: "Why the delay from now until then if people have already been double jabbed?" Beerd, recently had to close because one staff member tested positive for Covid, putting the rest of the team into self-isolation. "We'll be in a position until everyone on my team is double jabbed where we will be constantly opening and closing because they will still have to self-isolate for 10 days if they come into contact with somebody that has Covid, so that's no use to me," he said.
