Outdoor hospitality re-opens in Rhyl today, and Denbighshire County Council is asking customers to enjoy outdoor beer gardens, cafes and coffee houses safely.
The council is working with businesses to ensure they are able to re-open safely to help customers enjoy themselves while protecting communities.
Emlyn Jones, Denbighshire County Council’s head of planning, public protection and countryside, said: "Re-opening outdoor hospitality is a major step in the easing of lockdown, and businesses have been working hard to ensure they are providing a safe space for customers to enjoy themselves.
"Covid-19 hasn't gone away, and we still have to take every precaution to ensure it doesn't return. We are asking customers to please do their bit so we can continue to keep levels low and help protect our communities.”
Customers are being asked to follow the guidance below:
• There may be some queueing at premises so you will be expected to remain socially distanced from anyone not in your household.
• All premises must take your contact details for Test, Trace and Protect, in case they need to contact you.
• You will not be able to stand in a seating area to consume your drink.
• Please treat all staff with respect. They've missed you and want you to enjoy yourselves but abusive behaviour towards staff will not be tolerated.
• If you use public transport or need a taxi, you will need to wear a face mask. Drivers, including taxi drivers, have the right not to take you if you do not wear a mask.
• Proprietors and landlords must stick to the rules as well, so if you’re concerned about any premises contact [email protected]
