Garage to remain open despite new restrictions

Published:  24 March, 2020

Garages are among the essential businesses that are being allowed to remain open, following the introduction of more stringent restrictions to help fight the Coronavirus pandemic.

Yesterday, (Monday 23 March), Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced in a television address to the nation strict new measures, including a ban on public gatherings of more than two people and a once-a-day limit on going out for exercise. Travel to and from work is permitted if “absolutely necessary,” as is shopping for essential items. However, shops selling non-essential goods, and many other types of business were ordered to close.

There are a number of exemptions to the ban, including supermarkets, pharmacies, petrol stations, post offices and banks. Garages are on this list. Businesses that are in the supply chain of essential businesses are also able to remain open. Restrictions are expected to be reviewed in three weeks.
