Covid secure: Trio unite for pledge plan as lockdown starts to eases

Solihull Editorial 24th Mar, 2021   0

SOLIHULL, Coventry City, and Warwickshire County Councils are launching a Business Pledge for all businesses, including shops and hospitality, to reassure staff and customers that businesses and venues here are operating in a Covid secure manner.

The pledge is being developed in preparation for the second step of the roadmap out of lockdown.

By taking the pledge, businesses agree to work towards a number of measures to ensure their premises and staff are taking all the necessary precautions to be Covid secure.

It is also another tool that businesses can use to promote to customers and show what they are doing to tackle Covid in their premises.

Businesses wanting to take part, make a commitment to follow the guidelines and the principles of the pledge.

Once they sign up they will have access to the Business Pledge poster and materials to display on their premises, showing their support to being Covid secure to customers and staff alike.

Councillor Ian Courts, Leader of Solihull Council said: “The Business Pledge is a simple way for businesses across the sub-region to reassure customers that they are doing all they can to operate in Covid-secure way.

“As we prepare to take step two of the lockdown road map we have to remember that the virus is still with us and we cannot drop our guard. Everyone needs to remain vigilant, including businesses.

“I understand that customers need to see that they can once again use local shops and businesses safely, so I urge businesses to support the pledge.”
