The High Court has ruled in favour of the government and the current road map in the case brought forward by Hugh Osmond and Sacha Lord regarding the reopening of indoor hospitality in England.
The case sought to challenge the delayed reopening of indoor hospitality until at least May 17. Hugh Osmond, founder of Punch Taverns, and Sacha Lord, founder of Parklife and Warehouse Project argued that there was no scientific basis for the delay in reopening while other businesses such as non-essential retail have opened and resumed trading.
The judgement came through hours before a SAGE report was released that indicated that government ministers have been advised that the risk of transmission of Covid in hospitality and retail settings was relatively low.
