Super Saturday: England’s Dining Venues Reopen After 100 Days

Pubs, restaurants and other places in England will reopen On Thursday after being closed for about 100 days. Dubbed “Super Saturday” by the British media, businesses are already gearing up and the government is warning people to follow rules such as social distancing in case of a backlash.

Following the coVID-19 outbreak, schools, restaurants, pubs and other places were closed on March 18 and a nationwide “lockdown” was put in place on March 23. As the outbreak improved, the British government began phasing out restrictive measures in England in May. In Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland the process of “unsealing” is arranged by local authorities.

British pub culture is unique. There are about 37,500 pubs in England. People drink, eat and meet friends in pubs. From 6am on The 4th, pubs that have been closed for more than three months will be allowed to open. A total of 15 million pints (8.5 million litres) of beer will be served in Pubs across England on Thursday, the Sun newspaper said.

Police said they were “fully prepared” to reopen pubs and hospitals had been warned to prepare for the night as they would for New Year’s Eve revels. Mark Jones, a Lincolnshire police officer, told the BBC that for some people who had been at home for too long, especially young people, going back to the pub was “a stress release process”.

In an unusual move, pubs across England will be limited to the number of people who can enter, people will not be able to stand in front of the bar and there will be no live bands. People also have to register their personal information before entering the pub.

In addition to dining out, people in England will be able to watch movies from Thursday and couples will be able to get married. Museums and libraries reopened for the day, but gyms, pools and nail salons remained closed. No matter what activities people do when they go out, keep a social distance.

Novel Coronavirus infection killed 137 people in the UK on Wednesday. Britain has lost more than 44,000 people, the most in Europe and second only to the US and Brazil. The decision to unlock the novel is based on scientific evidence that “novel Coronavirus carriers are now unlikely to be closely approached”, said Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Johnson urged people to take responsibility for their own actions while actively going out to spend money, and not to undermine existing epidemic prevention and control gains. There was another attack on police in London early Thursday morning. Seven officers were injured when partygoers threw bricks and other objects at a site in northwest London where police were visiting after complaints of noise.

Police constable Lawrence Taylor said the large number of people at the scene was noisy, anti-social and violent, and “this type of illegal gathering is a public health threat.” In late June, 22 police officers were slightly injured in one of two attacks on London’s streets as they tried to break up “illegal gatherings” for two consecutive days. In accordance with the relevant regulations of the British government on the prevention and control of the epidemic, the number of people attending any party in England will still be limited to 6 after the further lifting of the ban on April 4.
