I see according to the British Government lock down Pet Shops are to be allowed to stay open as an essential service. All Churches are all to close and all Acts of Worship stopped as non essential. Funny old world. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/0/shops-essential-shops-open-uk-boris-johnson-coronavirus/ What essential shops are open? Shops that are exempt from the Government's ban are food retailers, pharmacies, hardware stores, corner shops, petrol stations, shops in hospital, post offices, banks, newsagents, laundrettes and pet shops.
