Open for Businesses during Covid-19 (Coronavirus) – May 2020 Update

Many business were told in March to close by Government until further notice, in an attempt to help reduce the spread of Covid-19. These restrictions were to be reviewed every 28 days.

As a result some of the local businesses have ceased trading indefinitely.

May 2020 Update

However, some businesses have continued to trade with revised opening hours, as well as variations to the goods and services their regular customers may be familiar with and the way in which they are sold.

For example – some businesses have stopped customers entering their store, but are accepting advance telephone orders for collection at the door.

Others may be providing a delivery service, where they may not have previously.

Businesses that continue to trade and are allowing customers into their premises (where permitted), are enforcing ‘social distancing’ measures both indoors and where customers may be queuing outside.
