There will also be cleaning teams out every day to ensure the town centre remains as clean and hygienic as possible.

Visitors to the town centre are being asked bring their own hand sanitiser, while businesses will also provide sanitiser at their shop entrances.

Hand washing facilities will be available across Reading’s public toilets, around half of which are currently open.
