Although it’s early days, we now have a plan (of sorts)!
It’s fair to say that yesterday, we saw real light at the end of the coronavirus tunnel.
The Government published a road map out of current restrictions which have seen our bed and breakfast closed or open under restriction, since March 2020.
Whilst the latest announcement was met with a collective relief across our village of Mevagissey, the whole or Cornwall and the hospitality industry in general, we must proceed in a cautious manner. As the Prime Minister Boris Johnson said, we do not want another lockdown so our exit must be more marathon opposed to sprint – even though we are desperate to throw open our doors again.
So what does the Government’s plans mean to us?
If all goes according to plan then we will be able to reopen again as from Monday, May 17 although this will not be known until nearer the time, based on infection rates, hospitalisations and sadly deaths. We are therefore taking bookings from that date onwards and for the rest of the year.
If we can open on May 17, we will do so still under some form of social distancing restrictions. This could mean changes to our breakfast menu, similar to that seen last year may remain. However, we are aware that this did not prove popular with some guests, even though the alternations to normal bed and breakfast life were put in place to protect Lara, Gareth, Toby and Olivia, along with guests too.
If restrictions do remain, it is hoped that it will be for just one month because again, the provisional plan is that by Monday, June 22, all restrictions will be removed, and we will go back to life how we knew it pre the late winter of 2020.
This would see a full breakfast service, room service and a greater interaction with guests – something we missed very much last year.
