North East COVID-19 Toolkit
The North East region has moved to Step 4 in government’s ‘roadmap out of lockdown’.
- All businesses and venues are able to open
- Hospitality venues such as pubs, restaurants and bars are no longer required to provide table service or follow other social distancing rules
- Government recommends face coverings should be worn in crowded and enclosed areas. Note: some businesses have introduced their own guidance on face mask use
- Organisations in certain settings are encouraged to use the NHS COVID Pass as a condition of entry.
This toolkit provides more information about the business support and finance and funding available for businesses impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.
