The UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, made an announcement on the state of the UK economy and business activities within the country this week amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
Johnson stated that some retail outlets will be able to re-open from the 1st of June 2020. However, casino establishments, bingo halls and retail betting shops on the high street are to remain closed until at least the 4th July 2020.
Announcing that hospitality industry related businesses such as casinos would remain closed, the Prime Minister stated when they do eventually open they may only be re-opened partially, meaning that reduced hours or altered measures could be in place for some time after re-opening to the public again for the first time since March 2020.
The new announcement is the latest update on the Covid-19 pandemic in the UK, but trading laws will only apply to England, as other parts of the UK have devolved powers and will setting out their own recovery and re-opening plans.
This means that popular casino venues in England, such as Hippodrome Casino London, may re-open before casinos like Les Croupiers Casino in Cardiff Wales and Genting Casino Fountain Edinburgh Scotland.
Other leading casino venues in the UK that people will be keeping a watchful eye on include: Casino At The Empire London, Rainbow Casino Birmingham, Grosvenor Casino Leo Liverpool and Aspers Casino Stratford.
Latest covid-19 figures out of the United Kingdom show that there are currently 261,000 confirmed cases of the virus within Britain, 36,914 of which have ended in death for infected patients.
