ILLUM newspaper has revealed that the government, with advice from Health Authorities, will be announcing the re-opening plans for several institutions, markets and activities. The opening will happen gradually and spread over a number of weeks. Several sources informed the newspaper that the first to open will be schools, followed by retail outlets and businesses related to beauty. The openings will be accompanied by several safety measures that will be announced by the government.
Restaurants and snack-bars might not be among the businesses that open on 12th April 2021. They will open later this month or early in May should the situation with COVID-19 not worsen – such as the introduction of new variants. Schools seem to be the first to open due to their closure bringing difficulties in learning and parents who cannot go to work due to having to stay at home.
