Questions raised over government’s decision to ban use of indoor schools *H&H Plus*

Calls have been made for indoor schools, which are not sealed structures, to be treated in a different way to other ‘indoor leisure venues’. H&H asks the government why equestrian centres are being impacted while many shops have been allowed to reopen...

Equestrian centre owners have questioned the consistency of government advice as non-essential shops have re-opened – while indoor arenas may not be used.

H&H reported on 4 June that, as confirmed by the Government Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), and adhering to guidelines stating that only outdoor exercise was allowed, indoor arenas cannot be used.

As part of more recent easing of lockdown measures, shops including those selling toys, clothes, books and electronics were allowed to open in England from 15 June, but indoor schools were not.
