All Crawley pubs, cafes, nightclubs, bars, restaurants, leisure centres and gyms to close from tonight



Prime Minister Boris Johnson has told all cafes, nightclubs, bars, theatres, restaurants, leisure centres and gyms to close from tonight Fri 20th March.

The instructions, which apply across the country, are to try to stop the continued spread of the coronavirus.

The PM addressed those who were considering going out tonight to meet friends at a bar or pub or going to a restaurant asking them all to not go out.

The news comes as the Chancellor Rishi Sunak announced a new raft of measures to help protect peoples wages with grants available to businesses covering 80% of salaries with an upper limit of £2,500 per month.

Only two days ago K2 Crawley had announced that they would be staying open until they were told by the government to close. The same had also been reported by other gyms in the town.

Many restaurants and cafes were also still operating with many people seen enjoying coffee outside the premises in Queens Sq.

Now, the decision to stay open has been taken away from them all and after tonight they all must close tonight as soon as possible. Delivery services are still allowed to operate.

Shops, however, are not at risk of closure at the moment which will still allow smaller corner shops to operate as well as the larger supermarkets.
