Closing certain businesses and venues in England

While many businesses reopened their doors on Saturday, there are many which will remain closed or will be required to close. This includes:

  • Nightclubs, dance halls, discotheques
  • Casinos
  • Sexual entertainment venues and hostess bars
  • Bowling alleys
  • Indoor skating rinks
  • Indoor play areas including soft-play areas
  • Spas
  • Nail bars and salons and beauty salons
  • Tanning booths and salons
  • Massage parlours
  • Tattoo parlours
  • Body and skin piercing services
  • Indoor fitness and dance studios
  • Indoor gyms and sports courts and facilities
  • Indoor and outdoor swimming pools, including water parks
  • Exhibition halls or conference centres must remain closed for events such as exhibitions or conferences, other than for those who work for the business or organisation who run the venue.

All shops, including cafes, restaurants and gift shops, which are part of the premises of a business or venue which is itself allowed to reopen from 4 July, or was already permitted to be open, can also be open. However, the shop, restaurant or café cannot carry on any business or provide any service listed above.

For example, a café on the premises of a museum, can re-open from 4 July.
However, a soft play area within a restaurant which is on the premises of a museum, cannot re-open from 4 July.

Shops including cafes, restaurants and gift shops which are part of the premises of a business or venue in the list above which must remain closed from 4 July, can only open if the shop, restaurant or café is in a self-contained unit which is accessible from outside.

For example, a café on the premises of an indoor fitness centre but which can be entered from the outside, can re-open.
However, a restaurant on the premises of a casino, which is not in a self-contained unit and cannot be accessed from the outside, cannot re-open from 4 July.

The Government will continue to phase reopening and hopes to reopen other close-contact businesses as soon as possible. Read more information on the official Gov.uk website.
