As announced last week, the Secretary of State has made the new Health Protection (Coronavirus, Business Closure) (England) Regulations 2020 under an emergency procedure to protect the public. These regulations now require large numbers of businesses to close, and others to significantly modify their operations to remain trading.
Corby Borough Council alongside our colleagues in other district councils recognise that for local businesses, and their employees, these measures have created uncertainty, and many businesses unsure to whom it applies. To check if your business, or your employer is affected please visit the government’s Covid-19 business closure guidance page
Our Health Protection team will be available throughout this period to provide support to local businesses on any regulatory matters, including these new measures and advice on diversifying your business activity.
