PUBS, bars, and venues across Southampton have announced how they will be implementing new Covid guidance after lockdown rules were torn up.

From continuing to follow the same mask-on protocols, to getting rid of them altogether, we have listed the changes taking place across the city.

But, in case you weren't aware, as of Monday - dubbed 'Freedom Day' - the Government has said that laws of indoor mask wearing, social distancing, and meet-up numbers have been abolished. They have instead been replaced with guidance.


Here are how Southampton's venues are chosing to use those rules (we are adding to this list throughout the day!):
