Virus guide for retailers

Social distancing poster

THE British Retail Consortium has released a new coronavirus guide for retail businesses.

Published late last month, the new Social Distancing guide offers tips on keeping customers and staff safe in store through practices aimed at mitigating the spread of coronavirus.

David Lonsdale, director of the Scottish Retail Consortium said: “Our members in pharmacy, grocery and the retailing of pet food have shown during this crisis that it is possible to operate safely and responsibly in this new environment, regardless of the size of premises.

“With any re-opening of shops in Scotland likely to be undertaken on a phased basis, once government permits trading, this new guide will assist retailers to operate safely and help get the economy moving again.”
