A Boots store in a Norfolk town has reduced its opening times in light of the coronavirus outbreak.

Boots on Wales Court in Downham Market now has temporary opening times and will be closed daily between 1pm to 2pm until further notice.

Vicky Scott, store manager at the Downham Market shop, announced the decision on Facebook.

She said: “This is to allow for staff breaks and the cleaning of our counter areas and key contact points.

“At times we may need to close early to enable us to safely dispense the huge volumes of prescriptions we are receiving. This will be no earlier than 4pm.”
