Almost all tourism businesses are allowed to remain open. The only businesses that have to close are the following ones in Blackburn with Darwen and Bradford.

  • indoor gyms
  • indoor fitness and dance studios
  • indoor sports courts and facilities
  • indoor swimming pools, including indoor facilities at water parks

People from outside are still able to enter the lockdown area to undertake a holiday (provided that they do not socialise with other people indoors). Pubs and restaurants will be open, but your guests should not socialise outside their group.

Scottish Government advice states the following:

If a specific area is locked down owners/guests should comply with any isolated lock downs in accordance with the specific guidance for that individual lock down area.  If this requires guests not to travel, or properties not to take guests, then the operator should follow CMA requirements and offer the customer the options of a transfer to a later date, or a voucher to rebook, or a cash refund.
