Today, the Government announced that is going further to help reduce the spread of coronavirus. In order to further reduce social contact, from the close of trading today, the Government is telling the following businesses across the UK close:
Food and drink venues for consumption on-site, such as restaurants and cafes
Drinking establishments, including pubs, bars and nightclubs
Entertainment venues, including cinemas, theatres, concert halls, and bingo halls
Museums and galleries
Spas, wellness centres and massage parlours
Casinos and betting shops
All indoor leisure and sports facilities, including gyms
Takeaway and delivery facilities should remain open and operational. We will change planning regulations so that restaurants, cafes and pubs which do not currently offer delivery and hot food take away are able to do so.
These measures will be in place for a period of 14 days, and then reviewed on a monthly basis to consider their effectiveness and compliance in light of changing circumstances.
