NI Hospitality to close again

Northern Ireland will again shut non-essential retail, pubs and restaurants for two weeks from November 27 to save the health service from becoming swamped.crownbar0720

The North was poised to emerge from a limited circuit-breaker lockdown until the number of infections rose to worrying levels.
Close-contact services and cafes can open this Friday as planned but will have to close again next Friday, while other hospitality sectors like pubs and licensed restaurants will remain closed throughout, Stormont ministers said.
Takeaway hospitality will be allowed but leisure and entertainment venues will be closed.
The measures were taken as top doctors warned hospitals could otherwise be overwhelmed.

'Elongated recovery' for Dalata

Dalata says that its business could be facing a longer-than-expected period of recovery to pre-Covid trading levels, according to analysts.clayton

 Dalata could experience an "elongated" recovery time due partly to the effect of latest Covid restrictions, according to Davy.
“The net effect is to assume a shallower peak-to-trough impact from Covid-19 and an elongated period of recovery,” said analyst Colin Grant.
In September, Dalata reported a near €71m pre-tax loss for the first half of 2020 and a 60% year-on-year drop in revenue to €81m. 
However, the group also raised €94m from a share sale to bolster its balance sheet and fund  hotel expansion in London.
