A letter from Una Kane FRSPH, Environmental Health Manager, Environmental Health Service for Rother and Wealden Councils

Dear Chambers of Commerce,

I hope you are all keeping well in these difficult times.

Wealden District Council is offering advice to businesses about how to comply with the current Coronavirus restrictions and what to do before re-opening.

Business may only re open if they are allowed by law to do so. A full list is available on our website at https://wealdengovuk.azurewebsites.net/safe-food-and-healthy-workplaces/

If a business is legally allowed to open they must be “Covid Secure”, to prepare for this they should prepare a risk assessment.

Where a business employs less than five people the risk assessment doesn’t have to be written down.

HM Government have provided full advice, some weblinks below.

Restaurants offering takeaway or delivery

Should local businesses require further advise on preparing risk assessments please advise them to email us at foodhs@rother.gov.uk

Since the pandemic began we have been patrolling Wealden district to check that businesses are complying with the restrictions and giving advise over the telephone. If you have concerns about the operation of a business please email us at foodhs@rother.gov.uk

I hope you find this information useful,

Kind regards
