What did we learn from today’s UK briefing?
Today’s government press conference was led by Business Secretary Alok Sharma, joined by Sarah Albon, CEO of the health and safety executive.
Here’s what they told us:
As had been planned, non-essential shops can open from Monday, as long as they comply with coronavirus guidelines
Local authorities and the health and safety executive will be able to take enforcement action against shops which do not follow the guidelines for keeping people safe
The plan to re-open bars, restaurants and pubs remains pencilled in for 4 July
The government does not have plans to reduce the 2m social distancing rule as some businesses have asked, but it is committed to keep it under review
The government is still focusing on the national situation, and the national rate of infection, rather than regional measures to determine the level of restrictions.
