COVID-19: Businesses and venue closure advice


Businesses and venue closures

To reduce social contact, the regulations require some businesses to close and impose restrictions on how some businesses provide goods and services.

Businesses and venue restrictions are set out on GOV.UK – National lockdown: Businesses and venues .

Businesses and venues which can remain open

For details of the businesses that can remain open go to GOV.UK – National lockdown: Business and venues which can remain open .

Building and construction

Housebuilding, and its supply chains, should continue to work securely. The government is clear that work can continue if this is done in line with public health guidance.

Working in other people’s homes

Home repairs and maintenance can continue. Guidance on working in other people’s homes and building works can be found on GOV.UK and FMB websites:

Buying, selling and renting

Buying, selling, and renting a home can continue, in a COVID secure way, as it has in recent months. Estate and letting agents can operate, show homes and sales suites can remain open and property viewings, mortgage valuations and surveys can take place.
