18 June in Lockdown

Non essential shops have begun to open up in the City Centre but not quite as usual. There are floor markings and signs everywhere instructing people on which directions to walk, enter and exit the buildings and to keep to social distancing. Masked staff on doors count the amount of people entering and leaving shops and direct the shoppers.

New signs are being erected in bus shelters to ensure people keep safe, as the amount of people travelling on buses is anticipated to rise now that non-essential shops are opening. Since June 15th it has become a compulsory for people travelling on buses to wear a mask or face covering of some description.  Bus drivers now disinfect their workstations after each shift swop.
