High streets stores across Sutton are set to feel the pinch as people are told to self-isolate during the coronavirus.

One business that has already been forced to temporarily close is that of Yoga, Sutton.

Situated at 73 Sutton High Street, the studio's owner, Danny Keith said they had a responsibility to the community.

"To be honest, I haven’t really noticed a huge decline in attendance recently but I am sure this would have changed in the coming weeks," he told the Sutton Guardian.

"Our main class is 'hot dome yoga’ which is a hot yoga class in an inflatable dome and is extremely popular which means most classes were fully booked.

"I obviously made arrangements to increase cleaning within the studio and took steps to encourage good hygiene but in reality, there is no way protect my members with these measures alone."

Last night Boris Johnson said that the rapid spread of coronavirus is now underway, and cases could double every week.

He warned people to stop all "unnecessary social contact", and said some vulnerable people will be sheltered for up to 12 weeks in plans to be brought in soon.

Alongside scientists he said avoiding gatherings will be important and reducing our social contact with others.

Mr Keith added that the support he has received in recent days has truly been something special.

"All memberships will be frozen for now and restart once we are back up and running," he said.

"I’ve been blown away by the support from our members and local the community, it’s been amazing."

He admitted that like everyone else, they expect to experience some financial strain.

But he added that shutting up shop for the time being was the right thing to do.

"My partner and I felt it would be irresponsible to continue classes with the current concerns around Covid-19," he finished.

"I have taken steps to reduce outgoings to almost nothing so we will be fine.

"I know other small businesses in the area won’t have that luxury so I can only imagine the fear and uncertainty they must be feeling."
