Guidance for reopening can be found here: https://bit.ly/UpdatedRetailGuidance

 

Key details to note:

  • Outdoor markets and car showrooms will be able to reopen from 1 June, as soon as they are able to meet the COVID-19 secure guidelines to protect shoppers and workers. 

  • All other non-essential retail will be expected to be able to reopen from 15 June if the Government’s five tests are met and they follow the COVID-19 secure guidelines, giving them three weeks to prepare.

  • Businesses will only be able to open from these dates once they have completed a risk assessment, in consultation with trade union representatives or workers, and are confident they are managing the risks. They must have taken the necessary steps to become COVID-19 secure in line with the current Health and Safety legislation.

 

Please note there is a free webinar, hosted by the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, where businesses can find out more about how to make your retail workplace COVID-secure: https://bit.ly/BEISWebinars
