Our New Normal with Covid-19

New Normal Social Distancing

Government has drawn up a roadmap to ease the lockdown as soon as possible. We will have to get used to a “new normal” due to Covid-19, with social distancing measures set to remain in place for an unseen future.

What might that “new normal” look like?
Non-essential retail will reopen soon. Garden centres have already reopened. In England, all other outdoor retail spaces will be permitted to start business from 1st June. Non-essential retailers can start trading from 15th June. Businesses will follow social distancing and hygiene measures as we have seen in supermarkets. We will see one-way systems, 2m away queues and the use of masks for customers will be mandatory. Plastic screens will be installed at tills to ensure there is no physical contact between staff and shoppers to protect both parties.
