Businesses that have yet to be given the green light to reopen need clear guidance from government, East Londonderry MLA Claire Sugden has said.

Gyms, sporting facilities, nail salons and other businesses have not been included in reopening guidelines released by the Northern Ireland Executive.

Ms Sugden said people needed information and guidance.

“Lots of these businesses feel forgotten about,” said the MLA. “If they can’t open up then they need to be told why.

“They need to be given the scientific justification for the decisions that are made. Without it, people are feeling frustrated.

“I have been approached by lots of gym owners and personal trainers upset at the lack of clarity and guidance.”

Ms Sugden appealed to the minister for the economy to issue such guidance during a Stormont committee meeting this week.

“Businesses that have been told they can reopen also need advice on what safety measures to put in place. People can go out and buy screens and guards etc., but if this isn’t best practice then they could be wasting their money.”

Businesses such as restaurants and bars can open from July 3, while hairdressers can open from July 6.
