England is to start a national four-week Lockdown on Thurs 5-Nov.

The Canine and Feline Sector Group (CFSG), the body advising the Govt (Defra) has updated its guidance to pet groomers. 

Please follow this link:


The Guidance is issued by the CFSG approved by Defra and Public Health England (PHE).

Public Health England is an agency of the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, the ministry that oversees Councils.

See also the following guidance on GOV.UK which states the following:

  • Veterinary surgeons, animal rescue centres, boarding facilities and pet shops. Animal grooming facilities may also stay open but must only be used for the purposes of the animal’s welfare (and not for aesthetic purposes).
