The councils’ COVID Support Advisors have been visiting businesses, providing bunting and non-slip floor stickers and posters, including ‘Please wear your mask’ signage to display on doors and windows. The campaign is also running on all of the councils’ social media channels.
To further support businesses and boost customer confidence, the councils are offering businesses the chance to take part in a COVID Safe Certification process. This will lead to a certificate that they can put on prominent display, once they have met the requirements and had this validated during a visit from a member of the councils' Environmental Health team.
Phil Courtier said: “The reaction from the local businesses has been really positive and we are working together to look at other ways we can continue to support our businesses over the coming weeks and months.”
The campaign forms part of the councils’ ongoing support to businesses. Over the past year, the two councils have distributed over £100 million of grant funding to qualifying businesses, to help lessen the financial impact of the pandemic.
