DETAILS about the reopening of the Sea Life Centre have been revealed.

The Brighton seafront aquarium will open to visitors on July 4, the day the Government further eases lockdown restrictions.

Staff will check guests’ temperature on the door to ensure suspected coronavirus patients do not enter.

And all visitors will have to book tickets online as the centre’s capacity will be “significantly reduced”.

“I’m sure after the extended lockdown, many families, particularly with younger children, will be in real need of escapism, entertainment and a way of making happy new memories with those they love,” said company spokesman Craig Dunkerley.

“I know our teams around the country, plus our site’s aquatic residents, are all looking forward to offering just that.

“We are really looking forward to welcoming guests back to all of our Sea Life sites and as ever, the health and safety of our visitors and staff remains our number one priority.

“Each site is utilising an extensive range of safety measures, designed to ensure a happy, safe and healthy experience for everyone.”

Cash payments have been done away with.

And clear markers and signs have been placed around the centre to remind visitors to observe social distancing.

Perspex screens have been installed on food stalls and service counters to keep customers and employees safe.

Meanwhile hand sanitising stations will be available across the aquarium.

Tables, handles and other “high-frequency touch points” will be regularly cleaned.

And deep cleaning measures will be put in place if any visitors are found to have Covid-19 symptoms.

Staff will also wear face masks and gloves.

“Sea Life asks all visitors to closely observe guidelines, maintain a safe distance from those outside their party and to keep up with good hygiene practices,” a company spokesman said.

“If they or any of their party displays any symptoms of Covid-19, they are asked to postpone their visit and contact the site to change the date of their booking.

“While Sea Life has been closed during lockdown, aquarists and other team members have worked tirelessly to care for the creatures at each site both practically via cleaning and feeding, but also emotionally via activities and stimuli to ensure fishy friends didn’t become bored.”
