Guidance on the opening of certain businesses and venues

Back in March, (on the 23rd), central Government introduced restrictions on which businesses and venues were required to reduce the spread of Covid-19.

Businesses providing essential goods and services were, and continue to be permitted, to remain open while all others were to close. From the 4th July 2020, a number of these businesses and venues will be allowed to re-open. Below is a simple summary of which businesses will be allowed to re-open and which will need to remain closed for the time being, as I’m sure this will affect many of you.

What has been announced?

As part of the third phase of the Government’s plan to return life to normal, on June 23rd Government announced and issued guidance on the further easing of Covid-19 restrictions. From July 4th, certain businesses and venues will be permitted to re-open, including Cafés, Restaurants and Shops that are self-contained with external access.
