Sport & Leisure by Yutree

Sep 24, 2020

Since March, when the UK locked down in response to COVID-19, the sport and leisure sector have, like many others, faced difficult times. Where people have not been overseas for holidays this year, many people have chosen a UK staycation and have enjoying localised attractions. This will have provided the sector with a much-needed injection of income however, we are, once again, entering the unknown as the government announces and considers further restrictions to protect the population and the health service through the winter months. For now, we can continue to enjoy activities in the sport and leisure sector where those businesses are operating in a COVID safe manner.

The ‘new normal’ has entered our vocabulary as a way of describing living with COVID-19 in our society. This ‘new normal’ is changing constantly and managing risk is the important reality for the foreseeable future. In recent weeks, many businesses have safely re-opened which is positive news for the UK economy however we keep a watching brief on developments and brokers with clients in the sport and leisure sector continue to offer important and constantly changing risk management advice to support those businesses through these uncertain times.
