JD Wetherspoon has unveiled an £11m plan for how it will reopen its pubs amid the coronavirus pandemic, including providing goggles and daily health checks for staff.
The company, whose cheaply priced pubs are a fixture of British towns and cities, said each of its 875 locations would have an average of ten hand sanitisers and one full-time member of staff devoted to regularly cleaning surfaces and touch points. It will provide gloves, masks and protective eyewear to employees if they choose to use it along with glass screens in some areas and around cash-points and staff will hand over all drinks holding the base of the glass.
The pound was neutral on Thursday and remained driven by global risk appetite, as well as by the fact that Britain seems to lag its European counterparts in planning to ease the lockdown restrictions imposed to fight the novel coronavirus. Britain now has Europe's second-highest official COVID-19 death toll with more than 26,000, closely lagging Italy, according to figures published on Wednesday. Figures for the number of excess deaths in Britain as a result of the coronavirus will provide a clearer picture of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic but might not be available for a while, England's deputy chief medical officer said on Wednesday.
JD Wetherspoon also said around 43,000 employees, accounting for more than 99% of its workforce, had been furloughed and there had been no job losses to date, although that would remain under review. Prior to the coronavirus pandemic, JD Wetherspoon had - like most pub and restaurant chains - been battling increased costs due to a mandatory minimum wage hike, higher property prices and power bills.
JD Wetherspoon on Wednesday said it intends to raise 141 million pounds ($175 million) through a share placement as the pub operator attempts to tackle the economic impact from the coronavirus crisis and related restrictions. Wetherspoon also said it was starting to plan for the reopening of pubs and hotels in or around June after the British government ordered their closure in March.

Tim Martin said: 'If you’re offered a job at a supermarket, many of you will want to do that. If you think it’s a good idea — do it.'
The City of London's pubs emptied this week after the government advised people to work from home and avoid socialising, a devastating blow to businesses that have oiled the wheels of professions like finance, insurance and the law for centuries. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said people should stay away from pubs, clubs and cafes to slow the outbreak of coronavirus, which is advancing fastest in the capital. The Punch Tavern, an ornately tiled Victorian pub in London's Fleet Street and once a key watering hole for newspaper journalists, had three drinkers in on Thursday afternoon.
Martin insisted pubs should stay open and said he would contract Covid-19 now if he was offered an opportunity under supervised circumstances.
