MEASURES TO ALLOW SHOPS TO FULLY REOPEN SAFELY

by Douglas McCall on 12 June, 2020

As most people will know the Government is allowing the opening of non-essential shops from Monday 15th June.

What many people will not know is that the Government has placed a duty on MK Council to ensure that shops can open safely, ensuring social distancing. They also have a duty to aim to prevent a further outbreak. To that end MK Council will be introducing safety measures throughout Milton Keynes’ key shopping areas.

Signs will be erected to direct people and to remind residents about this importance of social distancing.

Due to the very short notice given to the Council by the Government some of the signage may to temporary while the proper signs are being made.

The Council also plans to help promote local businesses.

There will be Councillors and Council Officers in High Visibility Vests on site for the first few days to help people get used to the changes.
