Coronavirus: Enforcement of Business Closures

To reduce social contact, the government has required by law certain businesses and venues to close to members of the public. More information, including legal exceptions, and guidance on their scope, can be found on the Government website. This page includes information on takeaway services and working in other peoples homes.

When using or operating any exemptions to closures listed, you should follow relevant social distancing guidance.

The restrictions placed on some business to stop trading to help limit the spread of COVID-19 coronavirus are being gradually eased. Regular announcements are being made identifying which business may now open, along with the release of Government guidance on what precautions must be in place before trading can restart.

A guide for hairdressers & barbers and a guide for pubs and bars that are planning to reopen have been published.
