England is set to reopen betting shops in June

Betting shops are set to reopen from 15 June in England

The UK Prime Minister announced that betting shops in England will start reopening from 15 June. It is one of the measures that will come to ease the lockdown caused by the COVID-19 outbreak.

In two weeks all retailers, including the betting shops, can come back to work on the scheduled date. At the same time, some safety measures have to be taken to limit the spread of the coronavirus.

The reopening of betting shops applies to England only, while Northern Ireland, Wales, and Scotland will lead their own opening terms.

What measures will be taken?

Sport betting shops as well other not-essential retailers can only be reopened subject to measures such as providing social distancing measures in place as well as frequent hand washing and surface cleaning, limited activity time, screens to separate people, and operating at a limited capacity.

The reopening process will come simultaneously with Royal Ascot, which is set to feature 36 races from 16-20 June.

It is thought betting shops will open step-by-step, with William Hill saying earlier this month it is planning a “staged opening” of its retail estate in the second half of the year.

As known, the UK became one of the countries most affected by COVID-19, which caused a total lockdown implementation. As of 26 May there have been about 37.000 death cases caused by the coronavirus infection reported in the UK.
