Local support for businesses to become COVID-19 Secure and the enforcement of closures to prevent the spread of coronavirus

The Environmental Health Team at Castle Point Borough Council continues to work with businesses to ensure they are;

  • COVID-19 Secure
  • implementing safe measures for minimising the risk of spreading the virus, and
  • are complying with Government’s safe working guidance    

It is hoped that local businesses comply with the advice in relation to COVID-19, in order to protect both themselves and others - however the Environmental Health Team take this matter very seriously and will not hesitate to take enforcement action, with the support of Essex Police, where businesses do not comply with the requirements.   

Government Guidance on becoming COVID-19 Secure

If your business needs further advice on the requirements, if you witness any business not complying with the requirements, or if you have any information to suggest that breaches are occurring in Castle Point, please contact our Environmental Health Team via;
