The centre has brought in measures including an increased cleaning regime, free-to-use hand sanitiser and social distancing procedures.

There are also signs, barriers, and directional floor markings setting out a one-way system along the malls to help visitors maintain a two-metre distance.

Staff will keep an eye on numbers, and while children can be brought in, family groups must be kept to a minimum and socialising on the mall will not be allowed.

All shopping centre staff will be given PPE.

Fareham Shopping Centre manager Mike Taylor said: ‘We understand that people will be cautious about returning to any public locations, and rightfully so – this pandemic has had a huge impact on our community.

‘So, we know the importance of getting these measures right, not only to ensure everyone coming into our centre is safe, but that they also feel confident that their health and wellbeing is continuously being considered.

‘Our centre teams have been working extremely hard under huge pressure and we are immensely grateful.’
