The Ivy Oxford Brasserie set to reopen

The Ivy announce their post-lockdown reopening plan.

On 23 March 2020, the government required all restaurants in the United Kingdom to close in order to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Now, as news cases and virus fatalities are continuing to remain low, the Prime Minister has announced further easements of the coronavirus  restrictions as part of Step Three of the government’s plan.

From 4 July 2020, cafes, restaurants and shops that are self-contained and can be accessed from the outside will once again re-open.

With rules still in place around social distancing, most venues will be required to adapt their setup and service to ensure the safety of their guests.

One venue introducing a range of changes for both staff and customers is The Ivy Oxford Brasserie.

In information provided by the restaurant today, the venue outlines several changes that have been implemented and which will be ‘in action’ when their doors reopen on 4 July.

The venue now requires their staff to register on special tracking software, as well as logging their temperature readings daily, over a seven-day rolling period.

The use of thermal cameras are also being used to continuously check for any temperature concerns, and professional deep cleaning and disinfecting of the entire venue will be completed on a daily basis.

In addition, the venue notes that they have installed air filtration units which reportedly kill 99% of the MRSA and H1N1 viruses, which are part of the same RNA Coronavirus family.

Despite the public’s uncertainty over the advice given by the Government to date, and fears about whether dining out ‘so soon’ is the best option generally, restaurateurs and venue owners are still feeling positive about the reopening of the UK’s hospitality industry.

Khrystyna Hromosyak, General Manager of The Ivy Oxford Brasserie says:

“We can’t wait to welcome back our regular guests and members of the community who we have greatly missed over the last few months. The team are also looking forward to being united again on the restaurant floor and in the kitchen, whilst maintaining a safe distance at all times.”
