The hospitality sector has เล่นสล็อต received the largest share of Jersey's payroll scheme over the course of the pandemic. More than £40m was paid to hotels, restaurants and bars between April 2020 and May 2021, Statistics Jersey said. Since the start of the pandemic, nearly £131m has been paid across all eligible sectors in the island. The co-funded payroll scheme was launched by the government in March 2020 to support businesses affected by covid restrictions. Construction and quarrying were given the second highest sum at just under £22m since April 2020. Nightclubs were told they would not be able to reopen until at least August on Tuesday as the relaxation of restrictions was delayed due to a surge in coronavirus cases. Five phases of the payroll scheme have offered different levels of support to cover employees' wages across industries including retail, agriculture, education and the self-employed. The latest figures for March showed 2,390 jobs in hospitality continued to be supported by the payroll scheme, the largest number among all sectors.
