Which do you miss not being open the most – your local pub or your hair salon?
Today we have hints from the government that pubs may be opening next month, as lockdown measures ease.
The Prime Minister said he hoped the two-metre social distancing rule could soon be reduced to enable businesses such as pubs and restaurants to reopen faster.
He said he had asked the government’s scientific advisers to look again at the guidance and was optimistic “we will be able to reduce that distance” as the coronavirus lockdown is lifted.
Reopening non-essential shops including hairdressers and beauty salons will only be done when it is considered “safe to do so” and this is unlikely to be before 4th July and this will only be subject to guidance provided closer to the time.
What are your views? Is consuming a pint more essential than having your hair cut or coloured? If you could choose, which would be your preference to open first?
