What social distancing measures are in place at Pret a Manger?

Pret said it's asked staff who usually work in the reopened branches to come back to work.

But all Pret workers will be paid 100 per cent of their wages, and those living with vulnerable people will not be allowed to return to ensure the safety of others.

The measures put in place by the cafe chain include distancing team members and baristas behind the counter, while protective perspex screens will be fitted to separate customers and workers.

Only card payments are allowed to avoid the risk of spread through cash, while there will only be a maximum of six customers in the shops and cafes at a time.

There'll also be markings placed two metres apart for those queuing outside.

To give customers peace of mind, all hand contact surfaces will have a strict 30-minute santising system, while movement in kitchens will be minimised where possible.

When did Pret a Manger close due to lockdown?

Pret a Manger shut its doors on March 21, joining Starbucks in closing due to the latest coronavirus social distancing measures.

It was soon followed by McDonald's the following day as the UK began the process of going into lockdown.

But similar to Pret, McDonald's is now planning to reopen 15 branches on May 13 – you can check out the full list here.
