Advice to businesses from Public Protection Teams
Written by Hitmix Local News on 5 May 2021
Twenty businesses have been given advice after public protection teams carried out spot-checks on Covid secure measures in 86 retail premises in Stoke-on-Trent.
They were warned about issues such as displaying posters with QR codes for test and trace purposes and posters to request customers wear a face covering, which is a legal requirement.
They found further concerns at six premises including a number of barbers and a hairdressers where the correct PPE wasn’t been worn by staff, and QR codes weren’t displayed. These premises were given warning letters and will receive follow-up visits.
Enforcement action is being considered against a further barbers shop in Meir where officers were concerned that advice that had previously been given on a range of Covid-secure measures wasn’t being followed.
