JD Wetherspoon has drawn up plans to ensure staff and customers are safe before its pubs reopen.

The company, which has The Unicorn in Ashley Road, Altrincham, and The J P Joule in Northenden Road, Sale, will open when given the go-ahead. Two full-time staff are being recruited per pub, who will regularly clean surfaces and touch points throughout pubs.

There will be screens in seating areas while gloves and masks will be for staff. There will be one entrance with a separate exit and customers should use the Wetherspoon order and pay app and contactless payment.
