Average pedestrian footfall in grocery and pharmacy locations remains high, with the weekly average at 84% of the baseline. There has been a small decline this week, however we expect this to reverse in coming weeks, as Christmas shopping increases and grocery and pharmacy locations remain open. Footfall in work environments also remained static, at 68% of the baseline. Advice remains in place to work from home where possible.
Activity in retail and recreation locations remains at 65% of the baseline, as continued closures affect the hospitality industry. The last week saw several days of crisp winter weather, which boosted footfall in parks and recreation locations, with the weekly average at 77%.
