Businesses and employers

Brighton & Hove is open for business as usual.

Public Health England is advising businesses to continue good, basic hygiene to reduce the spread of illnesses, and safeguard their customers and employees.

“We would like anyone who owns a public space, such as bars, cafes, restaurants, pubs, gyms, anywhere the public uses that they’re washing down equipment and surfaces regularly and adopting hygiene methods to keep people safe.”

Businesses should remind their staff to follow Public Health England advice to:

  • always carry tissues and use them to catch your cough or sneeze, then bin the tissue, and wash your hands with soap and water
  • wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport
  • avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
  • avoid close contact with people who are unwell

Businesses can also download and print the government’s coronavirus poster to display within their work spaces.
