UK Prime Minsister BoJo has just made a live statement, saying that the British public should avoid restaurants, pubs, clubs and theatres from now on due to the Coronavirus.
Whilst he hasn’t yet put an actual ban on these public events yet, he has said that he highly recommends people avoid going out in public unless absolutely necessary.
When asked how long we can expect this to last, an answer was unclear suggesting we should prepare for weeks, months and potentially longer.
I imagine we will now very quickly start to see those theatres that have not already announced closures, do so.
So if you are planning a trip to the theatre this week, keep a close eye on official websites to see if they are going ahead. I would be surprised if any will be.
