As restrictions start to ease, we are working to make the roads and streets of Bath and North East Somerset safe for social distancing. We are also working with shops, restaurants, clubs, and bars to allow them to reopen in a safe manner which reduces the chance of the virus spreading.
New rules and guidance have been introduced for all businesses operating during COVID-19. There are changes for businesses supplying food takeaway or delivery services, and some planning controls have been relaxed, to make it easier for businesses to open and run under temporary crisis circumstances. Regulations designed to protect public health have also become stricter, to prevent the spread of COVID-19. All businesses should check our business responsibilities and guidance page to check how these changes will affect them.
