Government announces opening of non-essential shops, gyms and beauty salons

By 1st February 2021News

Here is an extract of the CM’s statement:

For those reasons, we are all also agreed that we will open non-essential shops, gyms and beauty salons as from the 1st of February.
We will, however, not permit non-essential retail to operate on Saturdays or Sundays.
Those were the days when we experienced accumulations of people in Main Street at the time of the last unlocking.
To avoid that, we will permit the opening of non-essential retail only from Monday to Friday for the first three weeks of the month.
Again, after the 22nd, we believe we may be able to take a different position.
We will review this every 7 days also.
But we expect we will not permit Saturday and Sunday opening until the 27th and 28th of February.
