2. High Street shops to open
Thousands of high street shops, department stores and shopping centres to reopen safely in England
Shops in England selling non-essential goods will be able to reopen from Monday 15 June. Businesses should only reopen once they have completed a risk assessment, in consultation with trade union representatives or workers, and are confident they are managing the risks.
Employers should also display a notice visibly in their shop windows or outside their store to show their employees, customers and other visitors that they have followed this guidance.
Hairdressers, nail bars and beauty salons, and the hospitality sector remain closed, because the risk of transmission in these environments is higher where long periods of person to person contact is required.
