The Arts Newspaper have published an interesting article concerning the reopening of auction houses and commercial art galleries in the UK as part of the phase-two easing of lockdown. This could mean that such businesses could be reopened as early as 1st June. Museums are part of the third phase and thus provisionally scheduled for reopening from 4th July.

These dates are contingent on the fact that the infection rate does not experience a surge or second peak. Watch this space.
