From Saturday 4 July pubs, bars and restaurants will be able to reopen in Carlise, providing they adhere to COVID Secure guidelines.
A Spokesperson for Carlise City Council Stated “In advance of the reopening of hospitality businesses on Saturday 4 July, we have compiled some advice and guidance to make Carlisle a safe place to visit.
Information on licensing, planning and environmental health is available to local businesses on our website – https://bit.ly/2CS5uKg
A PDF guide has also been produced for businesses and consumers. It’s available at https://bit.ly/38hWBFu
We’re looking forward to welcoming more visitors back to Carlisle and urge you to support local hospitality businesses – drink and eat local. Before you make the journey, check websites to see when businesses are re-opening and what Covid-19 safety measures they’ve put in place.
There will still be restrictions in place designed to protect people from infection. Many premises will have a reduced capacity to allow for social distancing and it is expected that others will require the public to book in advance. It’s important that you plan ahead, keep safe and stay alert. Please follow social distancing measures, look out for signage and be aware of all the latest public safety messages.”
To make sure that they are prepared, Carlisel City Council are working with Cumbria Police and other agencies. Please see guide for businesses and consumers.
The Carlisle Council and Cumbria Police Have Issued This Advice for Customers
How to keep safe?
Please follow safe distancing measures and look out for signage.
We are also asking people to be aware of all the latest public safety messages.
- Do not leave home if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.
- Keep within your household or social bubble when socialising. If you are indoors gatherings are limited to members of any two households (or support bubbles), while outdoor gatherings are limited to members of any two households (or support bubbles), or a group of at most six people from any number of households.
- Maintain social distancing at all times.
- Wear face coverings in enclosed public spaces where social distancing isn’t possible including public transport.
- If possible, use hand sanitiser or handwashing facilities when entering premises (to reduce the risk of transmission by touching products while browsing).
- Keep contact to a minimum and try to use contactless payments if available.
- Some premises will need to limit the number of customers, so you may be asked to queue outside or book a table in advance.
Here are some tips from Cumbria Police on how to keep safe
- Always drink in moderation.
- Drink water between alcoholic drinks – it can stop you drinking too much.
- Plan ahead – charge your phone.
- Plan ahead – how are you getting home?
- Do not drink and drive.
- Never leave your drink unattended.
- Do not accept drinks from a stranger.
- Look after your friends.
