Businesses in Caerphilly County Borough comply with COVID guidance
Posted on : 05 Aug 2020
Bars, pubs, workingmen’s and rugby clubs in Caerphilly County Borough are complying with new COVID rules to keep both customers and staff safe.
Licensing officers visited and inspected 20 businesses on Friday, July 17 and Saturday, July 18.
During these visits officers were checking whether the premises had put procedures in place for out door opening and to ensure they were following Welsh Government Guidance to ensure the safety of staff and customers.
Checks were made on risk assessments, taking names for track and trace purposes, pre-bookings only, contactless payment availability, plastic protective screens in place, one way systems in operation, 1 in 1 out toilet system, enhanced cleaning and the availability of hand sanitiser.
No enforcement action was taken, but the council will continue to monitor and advise businesses during future inspections.
Councillor Nigel George, Cabinet Member for Environment and Neighbourhood Services applauded the venues’ compliance – and reminded residents and businesses to continue to follow the guidance issued to date.
He continued: “We have found generally good levels of social distancing and compliance with COVID regulations from all the pubs and workingmen’s’ clubs we inspected.
No enforcement or regulatory action was necessary during our inspections and, in the interests of public health and safety, further visits will be undertaken following the re-opening of indoors on 3rd August.”
