In a press conference on Friday 20th, prime minister Boris Johnson ordered nightclubs, bars, pubs, restaurants, cinemas, theatres, gyms and similar public, social spaces to close after a week of criticism from bodies such as London’s Night Time Industries Association (NTIA) and Music Venue Trust.


An extract:

His direction was less clear on Monday afternoon, when he “advised” the public to “avoid” “non-essential contact” and spaces like clubs, bars, pubs and restaurants.
