COVID-19 Initiatives for Hospitality Businesses
So much is changing in such a short period of time with the COVID-19 outbreak.
It’s no doubt that one industry that is suffering the most immediate repercussions is the hospitality and leisure industry. Hospitality is among the hardest hit due to fears of community spread through travel and group environments. Lockdowns have created a precarious business climate for restaurants, bars, cafes and other businesses dependent on guests.
But we also spotted a lot of positive inspiration! If you are a restaurant, cafe or hotel trying to weather the storm, check these initiatives designed to help the hospitality industry.
Don’t let coronavirus grind us all down. Everything feels overwhelming right now but we’re all in this together.
