Police and council chiefs revealed how they are responding to Derbyshire’s activities that were reopened before the government’s official orientation.
This week, the government announced that hotel businesses and others like hairdressers will reopen on July 4th.
Owners of gyms, tattoo parlors and beauty salons were told that they would not be able to reopen on July 4th and that they should wait until further information is provided.
In Derby, Abacus Tattoo and Piercing Studio, at Sadler Gate, announced that it was reopening before receiving an official guide, while customers have already been seen sitting at the tables of the Te Amo bar.
When Derbyshire Live reported on the bar that it served customers takeaway drinks, public opinion was divided as to whether it was an appropriate thing to do or not.

Some readers sympathized with coffee, and other people in the hospitality sector, who had a hard time during the blockade as the revenue ran out.
Others have branded the decision to reopen without getting the go-ahead from the government as the wrong thing to do, saying it would endanger life.
With the law as it is today, tattoo salons are not allowed to reopen under any circumstances.
For cafes and similar businesses, a slightly different set of rules has allowed those who are able to reopen only for takeaway service.
The City Council of Derby praised the city’s businesses for their collaboration during the coronavirus blockade and offered support to those who may have “misinterpreted” the guide.
He also visited Te Amo after news of his recent practices and school management on the current blocking guidelines, but he did not give an official notice.
A spokesman said: “Derby companies have been fantastic in this difficult period and overall they have been very active in asking for advice on the opening guidelines.
“Some companies may have misinterpreted the guidelines and where we have been warned, the board has worked to provide advice and support.”
The Derbyshire police said that “any violations of commercial activities are a matter of commercial standards” and complaints relating to the closure of Covid-19’s commercial activities or illegal openings should be sent to the commercial body.
This can be done via the Consumer Advisory Service (CACS) website, available here.
The police did not comment on the matter further.
