The government has announced all non-essential retailers will be able to reopen in England from 15 June, as part of plans to further ease the lockdown.

Retailers will have to adhere to new guidelines to protect shoppers and workers. Outdoor markets and car showrooms will be able to reopen from 1 June.

Updated guidance has been published for the retail sector detailing the measures they should take to meet the necessary social distancing and hygiene standards.

As a result, additional support and training for cleaning and building services employees will be required to ensure compliance with new COVID-secure policies. Those businesses outsourcing these functions will need to work closely with suppliers to communicate updated policies and personnel requirements. 

PRS is working with our clients to ensure workplaces are COVID-secure, and any key workers placed during this period are provided with PPE and the proper training to identify and reduce any on-site risks. 

Using the new guidelines issued by the government and global health organisations, we’ve created a free comprehensive guide to ensure your workplace is COVID-secure and help you inform future policies and procedures.
