Plus our top five safety measures
The new tiered system to replace lockdown is coming into force on 2nd December 2020 as the UK continues to combat the Covid-19 coronavirus.
The three tiers are likely to be in place until March 2021, causing hospitality, retailers, offices and attractions to readjust their safety measures during this critical phase of the pandemic.
Tier One will be the lowest, classed as ‘medium alert’ where pubs, bars and restaurants will reopen for seated table service and last orders at 10pm.
Personal services such as hairdressers, gyms and beauty salons will reopen.
Retail, entertainment and hotels & other accommodation can reopen.
However, even at this lowest tier it will be essential for employers to take measures to help protect staff, customers and visitors and to make offices, shops, hotels and other environments such as healthcare safer.
There is a difficult line to tread between focus on finances and meeting legal or value-based obligations to staff and other people with whom you interact.
Safety measures which are shown to reduce the spread of coronavirus (and other viruses and bacteria) from hands must be high on the list of must-dos as we enter this new phase.
