Covid-19: Re-Opening and Adapting Your Business

Guides for Businesses re-opening 4 July

From Saturday 4 July 2020, all businesses and venues in England can reopen, except for a small number of ‘close proximity’ venues such as nightclubs, soft-play areas, indoor gyms, swimming pools, water parks, bowling alleys and spas, which will need to remain closed for now. The UK Government is continuing to work with these sectors to establish taskforces to help them to become Covid secure and reopen as soon as possible.
Pubs, restaurants and hairdressers and accommodation sites will be able to reopen, providing they adhere to Covid secure guidelines. Some leisure facilities and tourist attractions may also reopen, if they can do so safely – this includes outdoor gyms and playgrounds, cinemas, museums, galleries, theme parks and arcades.
Covid secure guides cover a range of different types of work:
