Coronavirus & your Business

Sub Menu

For many of us it is no longer 'business as normal' following the outbreak of Coronavirus. Social distancing is the new buzz word and rules and guidance abound no matter what industry we are working in. 

As an industry we welcome the relaxations to the current coronavirus Health Protection Regulations from Friday 23 April and Friday 30 April 2021.

Customer Reassurance

You should make it clear to your customers that you are compliant with current guidelines and meet the Government's public health advice. If you have completed the Safe and Alert Level 2 Qualification and/or registered for Good to Go, please make sure you highlight this to your guests and customers, on both online and offline platforms.
