As non-essential retailers in the UK reopened their doors to the public on Monday, June 15, large queues of people reportedly lined up outside stores awaiting their turn to enter.
As part of Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s latest government guidance, non-essential shops, zoos, safari parks, and drive-in cinemas are a few of the spaces that are permitted to reopen Monday onwards.
