Safety protocols must be maintained to avoid further lockdowns, says Bira

Bira is reminding members of the importance of maintaining the highest level of safety protocols during the coronavirus pandemic.

Measures include encouraging your customers to wear a face covering while inside the shop - a requirement that became mandatory on July 24, 2020.

Retailers are also reminded to stock plenty of hand sanitiser, and restrict customer numbers in order to follow social distancing guidelines.


Andrew Goodacre, Bira's CEO, said: "There is an absolute need to implement the Covid safety protocols so that retail is always seen as safe.

"We not want this lockdown to go on any longer than is necessary and we do want to see any more shops closed."

Bira has produced a range of posters for you to display - including a new 'No Mask, No Entry' option - to encourage your customers to wear a face covering, and to thank them for doing so. Download them here
