Full list of everything still banned from Monday under lockdown law

Next Monday, June 15, will see the biggest easing yet of the lockdown law in England when non-essential retailers reopen.

High Street shops selling everything from clothes and shoes to books and electronics will be allowed to throw open their doors.

At the same time outdoor attractions such as zoos can reopen, along with those where you stay in your car such as drive-in cinemas and safari parks.

The rules across Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland remain tougher with much more staying closed.

It comes after dentists in England reopened this Monday, June 8, and schools started to take back pupils on June 1.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson is set to update the nation on the latest easing of the restrictions on Wednesday.

But there will still be a lot of places that have to stay closed from Monday, and a lot of rules that will stay in place in a bid to stop the spread of coronavirus.

Restaurants, pubs, hairdressers, libraries, churches, cinemas and galleries are set to remain shut until at least July 4 in England.

Barber shops and beauty salons will also stay on the banned list.

Hotels and other holiday accommodation is also ordered to remain closed for now.

The Government said these businesses remain closed because the risk of transmission in these environments is higher due to there generally being long periods of person-to-person contact.

Big name high street brands such as John Lewis, Debenhams, Topshop and H&M are among those which will return next week following the reopening of homeware outlets B&Q and Dunelm on June 1.

Boris Johnson said this week: “Shops now have the time to implement this guidance before they reopen,” he said.

“This will ensure there can be no doubt about what steps they should take.”

Helen Dickinson, chief executive of the British Retail Consortium, said: “We welcome the announcement of the Government’s road map for reopening a broader range of shops which provides much needed clarity on the route ahead.

“Safety is the fundamental concern for all retailers and they have been working hard to implement the necessary measures to operate safely over the past weeks.

“Now that we know which shops can open and when, retailers can begin communicating their plans with their workforces and customers. The industry stands ready to play its part in getting the economy moving again.”
