Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced a curfew for bars, pubs and restaurants – but they aren't the only establishments affected.
This week, Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced stricter lockdown measure following a surge of COVID-19 cases across the UK.
In an announcement made at the House of Commons on Tuesday, the Prime Minister outlined new regulations for England, which included a 10PM curfew for pub, bars and restaurants.
In order to stop the spread of the virus, a number of places will be forced to close at 10PM from Thursday, or face penalty charges.
However, it isn't just pubs, bars and restaurants that will be forced to follow the new curfew rules.
Full list of places closing at 10PM from Thursday:
Pubs and bars
The curfew applies slightly differently to cinemas, concert halls and theatres.
These establishments can stay open later, but only if a performance or show started before 10PM.
Cinemas, concert halls and theatres will also not be allowed to serve food or drink to customers after the curfew cut off.
