Opening your business premises safely
Covid 19 advice for the hospitality sector
Social distancing and hygiene
The government has detailed guidance on how to reduce the risk of coronavirus in the workplace so you can work safely.
Social distance posters
To help you keep your staff and customers safe when reopening, we have prepared several posters for you to download and display in your shop window.
These posters remind customers of how to keep safe, and allow you to set a sensible limit on how many people can enter your shop at one time.
Check for legionella
Water systems within your premises have not been in operation for some time or have been used at lower rates than in usual periods therefore legionella may have had time to grow in stagnant water within the pipework.
Ahead of reopening, you are going to have to do some work to the water system to ensure it is safe to use. The level of work required will be determined by the type of water system in the premises.
You must check your premises for pest infestation.
If you find evidence such as droppings or chewing, you must contact a reputable pest control company.
