So this is it! After the government’s announcement allowing pubs, restaurants, hotels and hairdressers to reopen on the 4th July, is your business prepared?
Even though the Prime Minister has said that ideally, people should remain 2 metres apart, a 1 metre plus policy has been introduced.

Have you, as a restaurant or pub considered the impact on your current layout? In pubs and restaurants, it’s not just about leaving at least a 1m gap between tables, but you will also need to consider allowing space for people to pass between those tables. Perhaps heading to the bathroom or the bar. Will a one way system need to be introduced?
With the new guidance suggesting that pubs and restaurants will all become table service, the spacing of your tables and chairs will become critical. Will you still adhere to the 2m policy, or try to get as many customers in as possible with the 1m plus rule?
More so than ever, your business is going to have a surplus of furniture.
As a hairdresser, will you have to think about installing screens between clients, whilst also allowing you space to manoeuvre around them? Space in most salons is at a premium as it is, with workspace, reception space and rooms for your stock. What is going to happen with the additional chairs that will need to be moved out of the way for people to work safely?
Don’t feel the need to rush and sell your surplus furniture though.
