As lockdown restrictions continue to ease and as we all work together to continue efforts to meet the next stage in the Government’s roadmap, the Council is continuing to encourage businesses and the public to stay vigilant, take care and keep safe.

Outdoor gatherings must still be limited to 6 people or 2 households, and you must not socialise indoors with anyone you do not live with or have not formed a support bubble with.

Businesses and the public are being reminded of the rules in a series of social media videos* which have been created to explain the support available to businesses, as the NEL Covid Marshall team work to cover the area – and act as reminders as restrictions ease.

Craig Allen, Lead Supervisor for the NEL Covid Support team comments, “The Covid Support team are here to support local businesses across the Borough (Cleethorpes, Grimsby and Immingham and surrounding villages).

“ The team are working hard to make sure that businesses operate in best practice, as well as offering materials such as posters, signage – to prompt and act as reminders to members of the public to remember, hands face and space – for the safety of the customers but also the staff that work there as well.”

Businesses who want help and advice can call 01472 313131 or email us covidsupportteam@nelincs.gov.uk.

Hospitality venues are currently open, for outdoor at-seat service only. Visitors to the venue are encouraged to book in advance where possible, use hand sanitising stations on arrival and make sure that they are adhering to the venue’s protocols and signing in on entry.

Social distancing remains in place to reduce the risk of North East Lincolnshire’s Covid rate rising again.

Please help to play your part to stop the spread of Coronavirus – remember, hands face and space.
