Roads in busy seaside tourist spots will be shut to allow for social distancing and queuing as pubs and cafés reopen.
From tomorrow, a closure will be in place along The Parade service road in Margate, where there are bars, restaurants and cafés running alongside the piazza near Turner Contemporary.
The road, which runs parallel to the main B2051, will be shut between the junctions with Duke Street and King Street.
King Street, from the rear entrance to White Hart Mansions to the junction of the B2950 The Parade, will be closed to traffic as will Lombard Street at the junction with B2055 Hawley Street.
Some roads will also become two-way, but only for essential access and exit, including King Street, from the junction with Broad Street to the rear entrance to White Hart Mansions, and Lombard Street, from where it is closed at the junction with Hawley Street to the junction with New Cross Street.
The one-way flow will be reversed in New Cross Street so it becomes one-way southbound and there will be no entry into that road from New Street.
The restrictions over-ride any existing parking entitlements.
Over the coming weeks, there will also be temporary changes to traffic management and pedestrian access to the streets around Marine Drive in Margate and Harbour Parade in Ramsgate.
Deputy Leader of Thanet District Council, Cllr Helen Whitehead, said: "We know that many of you want to be able to support local businesses again and we have been working with them to ensure they are putting measures in place to maintain social distancing and keep customers and staff safe.
"While things will start to look more like normal, I would urge everyone to remember that we are still in a pandemic. Social distancing rules still apply and, although relaxation of some guidelines is welcomed, it is vital that we are responsible, considerate and entirely protective of those members of our community who are most vulnerable.
"Particularly as bars and restaurants open, I want to remind people not only to act responsibly but also to respect our towns.
"Social distancing is still in place, whether we are outdoors, shopping, or resuming work.
"These regulations are in place for a reason, and it isn't to inconvenience, it isn't an afterthought - it is to protect all of us and ensure that the infection rate does not rise again.
"Please look after yourselves and others.
"We are all depending on our ability as a community to care for each other, and I know that this hugely supportive community is more than capable of doing so."
