So what are the Preston pubs that are open right now for outdoor drinking and eating? And what are the regulations? Well, there are several pubs accepting outdoor drinkers and diners, including:

Students urged to stay safe

While pubs are now open, it’s important that students do everything possible to stay safe and secure. Speaking on the matter, Dr Sakthi Karunanithi, Lancashire County Council’s Director of Public Health, said:

“The latest easing of restrictions has been enabled by the hard work and sacrifices of the people of Lancashire. Your dedication to the cause, bolstered by the excellent work of our NHS-led vaccination programme, has helped drive down infections of Covid-19 in our communities.But while we are now able to enjoy some of our freedoms once again, we must also be mindful of the risk Covid-19 still faces. Infection levels are the lowest they have been for some time, but the virus has not gone away from our communities entirely, and a significant portion of people are still yet to be vaccinated. We want you to enjoy your freedoms, but please continue to follow the rules. Please continue to follow hands, face, space, and keep indoor spaces well ventilated. All of this, alongside the vaccine, will help to avoid a fourth wave and will ensure Lancashire can recover and most importantly – bounce back – from the pandemic.”
