As part of the updated rules from the government on March 23 which stepped up measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus, all non-essential premises have been forced to close.

The government also advised that where people live in hotels as interim abodes whilst their primary residence is unavailable, they may continue to do so. Key workers can continue to stay in hotels or similar where required.

In the statement by the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, he asked businesses and premises and other venues not to open for trade from close of trade March 23, 2020. The government will look again at these measures in three weeks, and relax them if the evidence shows this is possible.
