Closure of businesses during the Coronavirus pandemic
As part of the emergency measures currently in place to stop the spread of Coronavirus, certain businesses and premises must close until further notice. This list may be subject to change.
Any business that is required to remain closed but still trades and fails to comply with these emergency measures will be committing a legal offence and be subject to enforcement and potentially unlimited fines.
Providing takeaway food and food home delivery is still currently permitted. Any food business that intends to provide food this way must be registered with Environmental Health. It is important that hygiene procedures are followed to keep food safe and precautionary measures are in place to prevent the spread of the virus. Advice is available for businesses wanting to provide a takeaway and/or food delivery service.
