Thousands of people in Liverpool believe that pubs are opening too early as many remain worried about a "second wave".
Scousers have had their say and as bars, restaurants and pubs prepare to open their doors on Saturday, many don't agree with the government's decision to ease restrictions.
Over 11,000 people took part in a poll on the ECHO Facebook page and were asked "Is tomorrow too early to reopen the pubs?"
A staggering 79% of those who answered said that they do believe it was too early with many taking to the comments to explain why they answered that way.
Liam Perry said: "I actually don't understand how the pubs are opening when it's all over the news the cases are only going up."
Nasir Shaikh also said: "Disgraceful decision made by the prime minister.
"Once the pubs are opened there will be no distancing. People have got to be careful."
Ross Benjamin Camplin added: "Do the sensible thing and stay home this weekend – do you really want to be on a ventilator in two weeks time?"
Others however, said the reopening wouldn't be a problem if people behaved "responsibly".
Michael Dsantos said: "Yes it's OK if people can be trusted and be responsible."
Christina Martin added: "All depends if you going to be silly and ruin it. If you want normality it will take time, care, patience and respect for all."
Strict new measures have been put in place to make sure that the reopening of pubs and restaurants in the city is as safe as possible.
These include markings on roads and footpaths to help people keep to social distancing during their day.
New seating areas have also been put in place on Castle Street and Bold Street to stop people from gathering too closely together inside establishments.
In a video released by the Merseyside Police, Chief Inspector Andy Creer – one of the senior officers planning events for this weekend – advises things will look and feel very different as the city starts to reopen.
The senior officer says it is good news to see some restrictions lifted in terms of the economy and people finally getting to socialise with friends.
However, he warns that the r einfection rate is still higher in Merseyside than the national average.
This means that the measures put in place to ensure the safety of drinkers should be strictly followed.
Chief Insp Creer said: “We’ve got to get the city back to where it belongs and we need everyone to play their part.”
He added: “Come and have a good time – come and enjoy what this city has to offer but please be respectful to other people.”
In a statement, Merseyside Police Assistant Chief Constable Natalie Perischine said "things will look and feel different for those intending to go out".
She added: "This weekend is of course a significant step in the reopening of many businesses across Merseyside, but we must all tread carefully as people get used to how things will operate.
"You’ll have to book in, queue up, and ensure social distancing is maintained throughout.
"People will need to be really patient and respect those who are working as hard as possible in these strange conditions including door staff, bar staff and people serving you.
“You’ll also see new processes in place, such as pedestrianised roads in places including Liverpool City Centre and Prescot Town Centre, to help people social distance outside bars.
"These measures are designed specifically with your safety in mind and we are hugely supportive of them.
“Planning a night out in advance has never been more important, so please ensure you’re allowed into where you want to go, stay safe from the spread of the virus, and ensure travel arrangements are in place so you can safely get home.
"Do your research and put the safety of yourself and others first."
