Today has seen the opening of non-essential retail; close contact services such as hairdressers, barbers and nail salons; public buildings, including libraries and community centres. Indoor leisure facilities such as gyms will also reopen (but only for use by people on their own or in household groups); as will most outdoor attractions and settings including outdoor hospitality venues, zoos, theme parks, and drive-in cinemas. Self-contained accommodation such as campsites and holiday lets, where indoor facilities are not shared with other households, will also be able to reopen. Hospitality venues will be allowed to serve people outdoors.
Wider social contact rules will still apply in all these settings to prevent indoor mixing between different households.
South Staffordshire Council has put together and published some really useful ‘Guidance Information Leaflets’ for some of these businesses, which they hope will assist with re-opening. There are some common themes which can be applied to all settings.
