BRC advice on social distancing in retail stores

It is not clear when the non-food retail sector will re-open for business, however it is important to be ready and British Retail Consortium have put together some recommendations.

The document outlines recommendations businesses may wish to consider to facilitate implementation of social distancing in retail stores. They are based on the experience of food retail businesses who have been operating social distancing effectively in stores for a number of weeks.

The measures are non-exhaustive and it is the responsibility of each business to decide the most appropriate methods to implement social distancing and other coronavirus control measures in their business. Over and above these specific recommendations there should be open dialogue with colleagues to reassure them and discuss any concerns about the safety of their role.
