Hertfordshire County Council is working with district and borough councils and other organisations across the county to launch a new ‘Stay Safe Hertfordshire’ campaign, which supports the safe re-opening of Hertfordshire’s town centres.

 

As part of the campaign, Hertfordshire’s Behaviour Change Unit has developed a toolkit for businesses to provide advice and resources that will help you re-open your premises safely. The toolkit for businesses is available to view and download here.

 

The toolkit includes a suite of posters than can be displayed in your premises to encourage social distancing and other behaviours that will help to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

 

You may have already seen the changes to road layouts in town centres, which have been put in place to allow for safer social distancing for pedestrians and to make it easier for active travel. We have written to affected businesses and residents about these changes.  Feedback can be reported via this online form.

 

You will soon see signage displayed across the county, urging people to stay socially distanced, follow signs and markers, be patient and considerate towards one another and shop locally. The campaign will also continue to remind people to wash their hands and cough/sneeze into a tissue and throw it away, as these measures remain vital in preventing the spread of Covid-19. If you would like to download any of this signage or our social media graphics for your own use, please visit www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/staysafetoolkit
