We have all been in lockdown since March. Places have been closed and we have been staying home and getting used to a different life.
It’s not been easy but it has saved lives. After 3 months some things are carefully starting back up again.
Most of us haven’t had this virus yet so please be very careful from July 4th.
From 4th July the Government are changing their guidance. More places will be opening and the safe distance advice will change from 2 meters to 1 meter.
The Government think this is the best way for pubs, cafes and restaurants to open.
The virus has not gone away.
