What can re-open from June 15th

From June 15 a number of premises which were closed due to Covid19 restrictions can now re-open providing they are taking steps to be Covid19 safe.

This includes:

Clothes & accessories shops

Charity Shops

Betting Shops & Arcades

Auction Houses & Antique Stores

Retail art galleries

Photography studios

Gift shops (including those in tourism and heritage sites)

Mobile phone stores

book shops

computer game shops

Shoe shops

Tailors & dress fitters

Vape shops

zoos and safari parks

drive in cinemas

places of worship can open for individual prayer but not for group worship. 

Social distancing must remain in place wherever possible and shoppers are asked to wear cloth facemasks in enclosed spaces to help reduce the transmission of the virus. 

Sadly restrictions remain in place for hairdressers and beauty salons, tanning centres, restaurants, cafes (takeaway can still be provided), piercing and tattoo parlours, pubs, bars, gyms and spas, indoor tourist attractions, community centres, night clubs, concert halls, theme parks, camping sites, hotels, theatres and indoor cinemas, art galleries and museums, soft play centres, swimming pools, libraries, bowling alleys and other entertainment venues are still to remain closed.  We are on track for them to re-open July 4 but it will of course depend on the scientific evidence and whether or not these sites can implement the guidelines as appropriate.

Tamworth Borough Council is offering advice for all businesses on business@tamworth.gov.uk and you can see the Government guidelines at www.gov.uk/coronavirus
