New Legislation Very Important

The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Business Closure) (England) Regulations 2020 (SI 2020 No. 350) require the closure of businesses selling food or drink for consumption on the premises, and businesses listed in the Schedule, to protect against the risks to public health from coronavirus. To see the related Government advice go to Business advice (pdf 186 kb).

To see prepared local guidance for food businesses go to Guidance (pdf 150 kb) and for Consumers go to Poster (pdf 160 kb).

Any issues on the enforcement implications please send through to psr@newcastle.gov.uk
