Scottish caravan parks may open from 3 July and Welsh parks from 11 July
Scotland – the Scottish Parliament has published a new route map for reopening, which includes the following milestones:
- 3 July – travel distance limit relaxed, self-catering accommodation and second homes (without shared facilities) permitted to open
- 6 July – outdoor hospitality allowed (subject to physical distancing rules and public health advice)
Scotland will keep the two-metre social distancing rule, but considers the following sectors and settings appropriate for exceptions to the 2m rule, provided that businesses implement agreed mitigations:
- Public transport
- Outdoor hospitality
- Indoor hospitality
- Retail (including personal retail services)
The Route Map sets out what those mitigations may be, but mitigation measures still need to be agreed on a sector by sector basis.
Wales – the Welsh Assembly has also published a timetable for reopening, summarised below:
- If the requirement to stay local is lifted on 6 July, outdoor visitor attractions will be able to reopen on that date.
- Subject to a review of coronavirus regulations on 9 July, self-contained accommodation can open on 11 July.
- Subject to the above, the hospitality sector will re-open outdoors from 13 July.
- No dates have been set for reopening indoor hospitality facilities other than self-catering.
