Reopening your business safely during COVID-19: Camden Council update

Reopening your business safely during COVID-19
As lockdown measures begin to ease this weekend, we are supporting businesses in Camden, including bars, pubs and restaurants, to reopen safely and get their premises COVID-secure.
Where possible, businesses should encourage their customers and staff to keep a safe 2 metre distance from others. Where they can’t keep 2 metres apart, they can stay 1 metre apart, as long as other measures are followed.
Here’s how you can help your customers and staff to keep a safe distance:
. Use of facemasks and coverings
. Use of screens and barriers
. Implement of a one-way system for customers to navigate through the premises
. Stagger opening and closing times
. Avoid face-to face contact where possible
. Provide hand-sanitising and washing facilities
. Use contactless or card payment facilities
. Minimise queuing and manage unavoidable queues.
If you’re planning to reopen your business this weekend, you must undertake appropriate risk assessments to make your premises COVID-secure. You can use the Government’s COVID-secure risk assessment tool.
Our frontline presence team is out across Camden seven days a week offering support and advice to businesses on safe social distancing. They make sure local businesses are maintaining 2-metre distancing, where possible, or keeping a safe distance, to protect customers and their workforce.
We’ll also be sharing useful guidance this weekend via Twitter. Please follow @CamdenCouncil and retweet spread the word via your social channels.
