Covid-19 – Business Resources


Page Last Updated: 02/10

With restrictions are reintroduced, and the possibility of local lockdowns coming into force, the BID wants to ensure that organisations are in the best possible position to navigate the changes to legislation and minimise disruption.

We have collected some of the most relevant resources for our businesses including official government guidelines and updated information on the status of both boroughs by the local councils.

This information will be updated when new developments and new regulations are released. However, the responsibility remains with individual businesses to ensure that they are following guidance most relevant to their organisations and adhering to legal guidelines, to ensure a safe working environment for their employees.

If you feel uncertain as to how your business can best navigate through this period, or what support is available to you, please contact the BID via BID@southbanklondon.com to discuss further.
