Most of these businesses will be required to operate at 50 per cent capacity to ensure proper physical distancing.

And staff must wear personal protective equipment such as masks and gloves.

Hair salons and barber shops will also be offering a different experience for customers, and many will likely raise prices to cover lost business and increased overheard.

Some health services will also reopen, including dentists, optometrists, chiropractors and physiotherapists.
