Trading standards

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

It is now compulsory for hospitality businesses and other high risk settings to collect contact details to support the NHS Test, Trace and Protect service. Details of staff, customers and visitors need to be recorded.

From September 14, 2020, it is a legal requirement to wear face coverings in indoor public spaces as well as on public transport.

You can find specific guidance and downloadable resources to help you prepare to re-open your business.
