Businesses and organisations have been playing their part by putting measures in place in their venues to tackle the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

From today, (Friday 18 September), new legal requirements make it compulsory for them to do so, or risk facing a fine.

From today, pubs, bars, cafes and restaurants in England will need to take bookings of no more than six people, ensure that people are not meeting in groups of more than six people on their premises, and make sure there is sufficient space between tables.

It will also be compulsory for certain businesses and organisations to collect customer, visitor and staff contact details.

From next Thursday, (24 September), it will also be a legal requirement for those businesses to display the official NHS QR code posters, (as mentioned above).
