Hospitality sector furloughs 80% of staff, although seasonal workers excluded  

An ONS survey shows that eight out of ten hospitality workers have been furloughed, with 81% of businesses in the sector having closed (second only to the art, entertainment and recreation industry).  As mentioned elsewhere in our food business theme, concerns have been raised that many workers in the hospitality sector may not qualify for government support through the furlough scheme due to the seasonal nature of their employment.
