|Covid: 'It is important that this is the last lockdown'
Prime Minister Boris Johnson has สมัครสมาชิกสล็อต unveiled a four-part plan to ease the current lockdown restrictions in England. BBC News
spoke to people working in the hotel, beauty and gym industries to find out their reaction to the announcement.
'There is a ray of light in this for us'
"The most damaging thing is opening and then closing," says Julie Nwosu, who owns the Grosvenor Hotel, in Clacton-on-Sea, Essex,
with husband Chika.
"That has been even more damaging than the lockdown itself, so it is important that we get this right so that this is the last lockdown."
Under Mr Johnson's plan, hotels should be able to reopen from 17 May.
Mr Nwosu says he is disappointed at not to being able to open earlier because he will miss the Easter trade.
However, he is reassured the plans appear to have been "well thought through".
"The key message for me is that the plan looks like it is irreversible and like there will be no more lockdowns," he says.
'It is really expensive to be closed'
Michaela Bartlett's health and beauty business in Billericay has been closed for more than half of the past year because of lockdowns
Despite this, Ms Bartlett wants a "careful reopening". She will be able to open on 12 April, as long as the various conditions are met.
"I don't want to be open for a couple of months and then closed again," she says. "We've had such a lot of closures.
"It is really expensive to be closed. But, at the same time, we don't want these knee-jerk 'you're open, you're closed' decisions -
they just don't get you anywhere."
