Due to outdoor hospitality being reopened on 12th April, the COVID-19 secure workplace guidance has been updated in regards to allowing payments to be taken indoors.
Full full details see Section 2.3.2 of the guidance but in summary:
“At venues serving alcohol, customers are required to order, be served and eat/drink while seated (even if no alcohol is ordered). You should take payment at the table or at another outdoor location. If it’s not possible to take payment outdoors, for example due to a technical issue, you can take payment indoors as a last resort. If you need to take payment indoors the customer should wear a face covering unless exempt, you should ensure only one customer is indoors at any time for the purpose of making payment, and you should operate a tab system to ensure that customers do not need to make multiple indoor payments during their time at the venue.”
