As Cineworld plans to reopen on 10th July, they have set out a number of precautions they will be taking in an attempt to keep staff and customers safe. Staff still await clarification from the company’s initial announcement.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Cineworld CEO Mooky Greidinger revealed that staff will be required to wear face coverings/masks but customers will not. The staff received this important information through the media rather than direct from the company. 

We propose that customers are required to wear a mask/face covering to enter Cineworld sites, and should at least have to wear them in high traffic areas (corridors/foyers/concessions), where the most contact is likely to occur. These restrictions can be eased in the auditoriums where social distancing can be maintained throughout the duration of a film.

By requiring customers to also wear masks, they reduce the likelihood of infecting other customers and staff. If numerous staff were to contract the virus, we fear that the company’s operations could be adversely affected, resulting in job losses.
