When the clubs do open again they will be advised to initially operate according to secure guidelines such as:
1) Temperature checks - client's and staff's temperature checked on entry into the venue using a non-contact thermometer, if higher than 37.5 °, the clients and employees will not be allowed access to the premises and will therefore be turned away and advised to contact their doctor.

5) Outdoor space - maximum use of all outdoor space where the natural airflow keeps the air as clean as possible.
6) Businesses that have a seating system have to allow pre bookings and to keep the list of subjects who have booked for a period of 14 days, ensuring compliance with the legislation on the protection of personal data.
7) In establishments that do not have seats they need to allow entry to a limited number of customers at a time, based on the characteristics of the individual rooms, in order to ensure that at least 1 meter is maintained between each customer.
