The government has announced new national restrictions that have come into force from 5 November. You should check the most recent government guidance (external link) and ensure that your business falls within one of the relevant categories to remain open. This includes essential retail such as food shops, supermarkets, garden centres and certain other retailers providing essential goods and services.
As we continue to experience the difficulties brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, we want to support businesses to operate in a COVID-safe way.
We have created the COVID-Safe Business Campaign to do just this. By completing the COVID-Safe questionnaire, you will be declaring that you are following government guidance to operate within safe parameters with regards to protecting your customers and staff. If you meet all the criteria, you will be sent a personalised COVID-Safe Business poster, which you can display on your premises, providing extra confidence to your customers.
To register, business premises or venues must:
- declare compliance to a range of measures including:
- undertaking a comprehensive COVID-19 risk assessment
- putting in place appropriate controls
- training staff so they adhere to COVID-19 control measures
- complying with government and industry guidance to operate safely
- declare that they will keep up to date with that guidance and advice.
Each month, we will publish the names of all businesses who have successfully registered on the council’s website, on social media and in the Haringey Business Bulletin, helping you to get the message to customers that you are operating in a COVID-Safe manner.
