Supermarkets have had to change the way they operate in recent months as the coronavirus led to the country going into lockdown. Morrisons has reacted to the crisis with food boxes and changes to its rules and opening hours for shoppers. However, it’s now announced that there will be a slight return to normal with the reopening of its fresh counters.

Morrisons revealed the news with a YouTube video on its social media accounts on Sunday.
The store is known for having a wide range of fresh food prepared, and boasts that it makes more than any other supermarket.
Sharing its latest update, Morrisons said it is opening up its Summer BBQ and Steak Bars again in stores.
The counters sell 100 percent British meat, something the supermarkets are trying to support as farmers struggle to keep business going around the country.
Morrisons said they cook your steak to order, just the way you like it, at the fresh counter in store.
The supermarket is also reopening its Seafood Bars so that customers can get hold of fresh British fish.
Its staff will fillet and prepare the fish for customers as normal so that they can simply cook it at home.
In the video, the supermarket said: “Things are returning to normal. It’s the new normal.”

Morrisons to give all NHS workers discount
Morrisons is also taking other measures to help shoppers get what they need safely.
Sharing the video on Twitter, the company said: “Thank you to our customers for all of your support so far. Things are returning to a new normal.
“We’re getting deliveries throughout the day every day. We have screens at our self scan checkouts so we can open more and we’ve opened Summer BBQ and Steak Bars and Seafood Bars so you can enjoy freshly prepared food at home.”
Many people are reluctant to use self checkouts due to the touch screens and the close proximity to other shoppers.

The new perspex screens divide the self scan checkouts so that customers can stay safe if they’re only picking up a few items in a basket.
Morrisons also reminded its fans that the shelves will be well stocked as they get deliveries all day every day.
They’re also continuing with the NHS hour, and have set up a new campaign, “More for our NHS” which key workers can sign up to and get 10 percent off their shop until July 12.
The scheme gives special offers specifically for NHS staff.
In addition to the store changes, Morrisons is cutting prices at its petrol stations.
As lockdown continues, the majority of those who are still driving and using their cars are key workers and NHS staff.
The brand wrote: “To say thank you to all key workers and other motorists making essential journeys, we’re cutting the price of unleaded to 99.7p per litre and diesel to 104.7p per litre from tomorrow morning.”
The new prices come into effect from today, May 11.
