U.K Reopen Salons, Gyms And Indoor Pools
The culture secretary says “normal life is slowly returning” as he confirms more lockdown measures will be eased in England.
The government has said, while gyms and indoor swimming pools will be allowed to let customers return later this month.
Easing of lockdown restrictions, outdoor swimming pools can reopen from Saturday and indoor gyms, swimming pools, dance studios and sports like badminton and volleyball from 25 July.
Outdoor arts performances – including theatres, opera, dance and music – will also be able to resume from this weekend, although audience numbers will be restricted and will be subject to social distancing rules.
Here are the key dates:
- Outdoor pools to reopen from Saturday
- Theatres, opera, dance and music to resume outdoors from this weekend
- Club cricket to return from Saturday, with other outdoor recreational sports to follow later
- Beauticians, tattooists, spas and tanning salons to reopen from Monday
- Indoor gyms, swimming pools and dance studios to return from 25 July
Oliver Dowden “Culture Secretary” “Normal life is slowly returning,”
“Having allowed hairdressers to reopen, beauticians, tattooists, spas, tanning salons and other close contact services can now do the same, I’m pleased to say, from Monday.
“Of course that will be subject to some restrictions on particularly high-risk services.”
There will be restrictions on numbers in gyms and pools and people will be encouraged to shower and change at home where possible, though changing rooms will be open.
Mr Dowden said face coverings would not need to be worn in gyms.
“We have not taken a decision to require the wearing of face masks in respect of gyms,” he said.
