An overview of this week’s key updates

Using our parks and open spaces

From Monday 1 June, up to six people will be allowed to meet in our parks and open spaces – as well as in gardens and in private outdoor spaces – providing those from different households remain two metres apart. You should try to avoid seeing people from too many different households in quick succession.

Help/information for businesses

From 15 June, non-essential shops in the UK will be allowed to reopen, provided safety measures are met. This date could change if the number of coronavirus infections rises or fails to fall at the expected rate.

It is essential you follow government guidelines and health and safety regulations before you reopen your business. 

Norwich Market

One of the ‘jewels in the city’s crown’, Norwich Market, will re-open from Monday 1 June. It’s important customers follow the measures put in place to keep everyone safe. More about the market re-opening.
