The Eat Out to Help Out scheme aimed to support economic recovery after the first COVID-19 lockdown ended in the UK. Nicolás González-Pampillón, Gonzalo Nunez-Chaim and Katharina Ziegler (LSE) find that the policy led to higher footfall in retail and recreation venues on days when the discount was available, but it did not encourage people to go out for other purposes during the scheme or to eat out once it ended.
