COVID 19 NOTICE
COVID 19 UPDATE – 01.08.21
We wanted to update you on the situation regarding Brum Tours following the Government’s decision to lift Covid-related restrictions on 19 July. Even though these have ended, the Government has made strong recommendations to the public about its behaviour and we remain in the grip of a pandemic. Given these considerations, we had a meeting at the Old Crown on Wednesday to discuss options with the Management there; to consider up-to-date Government guidance; to assess our own position in respect of tour guides and the numbers that we can have inside the pub; and to evaluate a risk assessment.
The guidance from the Prime Minister is for the public to be careful and the suggestions are that from September, only people with double vaccinations will be able attend gatherings.
a. Covid is a notifiable disease and public health authorities retain powers to close any business that presents a risk to public health. There is no specific guidance for tours so Brum Tours must provide the health and safety legal framework.
b. Covid infections are rising.
c. Experts on the pandemic have stated that the peak will occur between mid-August and the end of September.
d. 1 million people are vulnerable and at serious risk if infection spreads.
e. The Controlling mind of a business (in this case, we as Directors) would be responsible for any negative consequences as a result of a tour.
f. Overall, the advice would be not to sanction tours in August and September.
In response to this advice we have carried out a Risk Assessment, ensuring that we consider that the basic principle of the Risk Assessment is that an activity must have a benefit that balances the risk.
• One of our main guides has quite understandably had to find work whilst we have been closed and is no longer available. No replacement is available.
• The future for events such as ours is uncertain.
Obviously, we shall refund everyone who has either bought a tour or has vouchers for a tour. We would therefore ask that you send the details of your booking to firstname.lastname@example.org so that once we have verified your details we will be able to make a full refund. We respectfully ask that you do this before 31st December 2021.
