Update as at 24th June 2020
Yesterday, the Prime Minster announced that various businesses would be able to open on 4 July providing they are COVID-19 safe. These businesses include Hotels, pubs, restaurants, cafes and hairdressers. A full list can be found here : https://www.gov.uk/guidance/opening-certain-businesses-and-venues-in-england-from-4-july-2020?utm_source=a2bfb513-c2d3-4510-8c4f-8ac34b24537d&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=govuk-notifications&utm_content=immediate
Whilst the full “COVID secure” guidance has yet to be published for pubs, restaurants it has been issued for “close contact services” (e.g. hairdressers):
Pubs and restaurants can get a good idea of what is coming from existing guidance and as soon as the guidance is published we will share a link:
We encourage to join SWBID WhatsApp group where we can share best practice / experience
In the meantime, SWBID has a range of posters, floor stickers and hand sanitisers free for members. Please contact email@example.com
Saffron Walden Business Improvement District Ltd is not able to offer advice on any of the issues listed below. What we are trying to do is “sign post” information in an environment which is changing very quickly. If you need specific advice you should contact your own professional advisors (e.g. accountant).
Given the introduction of the “Business Support Finder Tool” (see below), from now we will only post updated information. As ever the Government outline the range of support information on https://www.businesssupport.gov.uk/coronavirus-business-support/
