The Council's environmental health teams have joined forces with the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) over the new few weeks to advise Aylesbury Vale businesses how they can minimise the risk of Covid transmission in our area.

HSE and the Council said they were finding 'common errors' from local business owners, such as not supervising nor maintaining social distancing and failing to introduce adequate cleaning regimes during busy times of the day.

The Council have previously called on local people to 'play their part' to help reduce transmission rates.

We all have a part to play to help everyone stay safe and protect Buckinghamshire.

"Whilst the vast majority of businesses are taking their responsibilities really seriously, we need every single one to do their bit to help us to control the risk and protect people from the spread of coronavirus.

“In the coming weeks, we will be talking to local businesses in Buckinghamshire to offer helpful advice and to understand how they are managing risks in line with their specific business activity. All businesses are in scope for these spot checks. So any businesses of any size, in any sector could get a call or a visit.”
