Require all cafes to close during national lockdown, including for takeaway
We believe that coffee shops are not essential and as such should not be able to open under lockdown measures, even for takeaway services. Allowing coffee shops to open means members of the public are going out and getting a coffee, when this is not an essential journey.
Under the lockdown restrictions across the UK, when non-essential shops are forced to close, cafes should not be allowed to open for takeaway services under these restrictions. It’s not right to risk the lives of workers and their families just so someone can have a warm beverage.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
