One of the county's largest shopping centres is cutting its operating hours due to coronavirus advice.
The Ashford Designer Outlet on Kimberley Way released a statement this afternoon, which has announced measures being put in place to stop the infection's spread.
Bosses stated that hand sanitiser will be placed around the centre's public areas, and cleaning has been increased.
Usually, the Outlet remains open until 8pm on weekdays and Saturdays.
However trading hours at the Outlet will now be shortened by two hours every day, so shops will be open from 10am to 6pm from Monday to Sunday.
This measure, starting tomorrow, will continue "until further notice".
The statement also notes that "larger stores will trade 11am to 5pm on Sundays."
Posted on social media, bosses conclude the letter by saying: "However, some stores may have taken the decision to close.
"Please check the brand's website. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause."
