But outrage followed after the government confirmed the time pubs will be allowed to be forgiven by the door.
Strict social distancing rules will be in place to minimize the risk of spreading coronaviruses between groups.
Although live sport can be shown, it will need to be at a low volume to keep fans from getting excited and screaming.
And all the common activities – such as the pool – are likely to be out of place for now.
What time will pubs reopen tomorrow?
Pubs can reopen from 6 a.m. tomorrow.
While most lockout restrictions will be lifted at 12 noon, the government has decided to set 6am for pubs as “a reasonable precaution just to emphasize that pubs should not open at midnight.”
A spokesman for Boris Johnson said, “The reopening date should be July 4 during the day. ”
Pubs can start serving alcohol as soon as their license agreement allows.
Seems a bit early …
Well almost as soon as it was announced, waves of anger erupted over the timing.
Especially since the police chiefs and the doctors had already warned of the disorders caused by the floods of the pub.
Piers Morgan, host of Good Morning Britain, said: “The reopening of British pubs on a sunny Saturday in July was pretty stupid.
“Leaving them open from 6 am is stupidly stupid. Does anyone at No10 have a brain? Or do they just want us all to die? Serious questions. ”
Deputy Labor Chief Angela Rayner said, “Prime Minister urges people to act responsibly tomorrow as pubs open for the first time in more than three months, then No10 says they will be open from 6 am? ”
West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner David Jamieson has warned of “potential chaos” this weekend when bars reopen on a Saturday.
Jamieson said, “I am in favor of phasing out the lockdown based on science but not the way the government has done it.
“It would have been a good idea for the government to plan the first day of pubs midweek or the following Monday, rather than Saturday.
“It would have allowed the sites to take a more sensible approach. It is not only my opinion, but it is shared by many police and crime commissioners across the country who recently raised this issue with the Minister of Police. “
Will everything reopen at that time?
Probably, but only a few pubs will be ready to kick things off at 6 p.m.
Wetherspoons will reopen 750 pubs at 8 a.m., with screens and floor markings to encourage customers to keep their distance.
Greene King’s pubs will not reopen tomorrow and will instead need a little more time to prepare their staff and premises for a safe start.
Many sites will require customers to pre-book a table, to ensure they are not overcrowded.
Some pubs will only offer table service, to prevent people from gathering at the bar, and there may be limits on the length of your stay.
People who visit pubs should also leave their contact details to facilitate contact tracing in the event of an epidemic.
These will be kept on file for 21 days and then destroyed.
