Greene King closes 33 pubs due to staff shortages caused by people forced to self-isolate by NHS Covid app

Mr Mackenzie said: "Across the industry, we think the number is about one in five of our team members who have been affected by this and therefore it is causing a real issue for us setting-up a business on a daily basis."

Staff shortages have grown as England lifted final Covid restrictions on Monday, including the legal requirement to wear a face covering to prevent the spread of the virus. Business lobby group the CBI has warned that "crippling staff shortages" risks hampering an economic recovery.

Forced by the app 😂😂 nothing to do with being close contacts / potential carriers or infected themselves no? LoL the App made them do it 😂😂😂🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️ A pity BBC deems red tops and GB news as it’s competition to contend with this type of tripe writing and headlines.

And shte wages. 0 hours crap. No sick pay. No pension benefits. Nothing? And maskless fkn drunks breathing all over them thanks to Bojo the butcher?

There’s a pingdemic because there’s an out of control PANDEMIC you irresponsible numpties.

More companies will follow them soon, it's inevitable.

Hi , your headline is incorrect. The NHS Covid app is the messenger. Your report should say that people are being forced to isolate because the government has let the JohnsonVariant rip through the country.

Fake pings from the dark forces trying to screw this country up = DELETE THE APP

Why would someone working in a pub have the app?

The right person, the right public debate square for the right world / 'Why doesn't anyone talk?' series / Upload. every Wednesday / My basics and past topics are in the profile. 99Th Week’s Topic- Should Japan hold the Olympics in its own way?

Least 33 pubs won’t be serving microwaved cardboard for food.

Delite the app..... Simple

That'll be good for all our health!
