Coronavirus: lockdown enforcement

The situation regarding Coronavirus (Covid-19) is changing very quickly.

To reduce social contact, the government has ordered certain businesses and venues to remain closed, though as the lockdown eases others can reopen.

Which businesses should close? And which can stay open?

Guidance on the steps that businesses need to take, including a list of businesses affected, is available at this page on the government website.  The page also includes information on social distancing for businesses who remain open.

How can I report a business which I suspect is open when it shouldn't be?

Should you see a business operating that you think should be closed - for example,  when you leave home for limited purposes , on a website or Facebook - then we would appreciate your help. 

Please forward their details to or telephone 0303 123 1702 so that we can investigate. Your details will not be passed to the business.

We appreciate everyone’s help in reducing the spread of coronavirus.
