Following on from central government’s announcement (22 September), there are now several changes to the way businesses can operate.
Working from home: you should now work from home where you can. If employees CANNOT work from home, they should continue to go to work as normal.
10pm curfew: Hospitality venues must have a closing time of 10pm, coming into effect on Thursday. This is a legal requirement and must be adhered to.
Table service: Hospitality venues can offer table service only. No one should order drinks at the bar, under any circumstance.
Wedding capacity reduction: Weddings are now capped at a maximum of 15 guests.
Face coverings: Wearing a face covering will become a legal requirement. As well as wearing them in shops, takeaways and other indoor communal spaces, face coverings must also be worn in hospitality venues, unless you are seated at a table.
COVID-secure workplaces: Ensuring your premises is COVID-secure will become a legal requirement. For more info on making your workplace COVID-secure, click here
