Euro 2020 – Guidance for businesses

Many businesses in Broxtowe may be planning to screen the upcoming Euro 2020 football matches at premises over the coming weeks.

It is important that businesses ensure screenings are compliant with the current ‘COVID-19 Secure’ regulations, and that good management practices are in place together with an up to date risk assessment.

Further guidance for businesses can be found by clicking ‘Euro 2020’ below.

Track and Trace STEP 3

Track and Trace in businesses, venues and other settings

The following establishments must collect contact details of all customers, visitors and staff (over the age of 16) on their premises for the purpose of Track and Trace by law:

  • hospitality businesses, including all pubs, bars, restaurants and cafés;
  • tourism and leisure venues, including hotels, museums, cinemas and amusement arcades;
  • close contact businesses, including hairdressers, barbershops and tailors;
  • community centres, libraries and village halls;

All those listed above must hold records from all their customers and visitors for 21 days. This reflects the incubation period for COVID-19 (which can be up to 14 days) and an additional 7 days to allow time for testing and tracing. After 21 days, this information should be securely disposed of or deleted within GDPR guidelines.

Current restrictions – STEP 3

We remain at STEP 3 of the government’s Covid Recovery Roadmap, as such the restrictions associated with this step apply under law.

Businesses are reminded that any further relaxation of the current restrictions, will not occur until STEP 4 is confirmed by government, and are still subject to review.

It is anticipated that the government will provide further announcements on STEP 4 by Monday 14th June.

STEP 4 will not occur any earlier than Monday 21st June 2021.
