According to the plan, the government plans to reopen bowling alleys, skating rinks and other places from August 1. In addition, the mandatory wearing of masks has also been extended to other indoor scenes, including galleries and theaters. As the epidemic in northern England shows signs of a rebound, the government has tightened its anti-epidemic policy in the area, prohibiting people from different families from holding indoor gatherings.
