This means that numbers can only reach about 40% of the previous capacity and so severely limits revenue generating opportunities. Add to this the early closing, the major additional costs of sanitising, the cost of weekly testing of all staff, rising electricity costs, rising food costs and the possible increase in minimum wage rates and you simply cannot make enough money to start to pay off debts let alone employ more staff. The future is not rosy!
