The new Wetherspoons reopening rules will be removed

Wetherspoons is preparing to reopen its doors to customers in England.

The pub chain closed in March due to the coronavirus crisis, but is planning to reopen in July in line with government guidelines.

New rules and safety measures will be put in place and, according to the new guidelines, Wetherspoons pubs will not display football or sports events in its pubs, reports Manchester Evening News.

The government guide reads: “All venues should ensure that measures are taken to prevent people from unduly raising their voices with each other.

“This includes, for example, refraining from playing music or broadcasts that could encourage screaming, even if played at a volume that makes normal conversation difficult.

“This is due to the potential increase in transmission risk, particularly from aerosol transmission.”

Consequently, a pub statement reads: “When our pubs reopen, our focus will be on meeting the social distance requirements and the safety of our customers and staff.

“For this reason and to avoid crowd congregation, no soccer or sports events will be shown on our televisions during the month of July.”

The pub chain has also introduced several other rules, including asking customers to order and pay for food and drinks through the Wetherspoon app, allowing only small groups inside and asking people to queue before entering when it is maximum capacity has been reached.
