Working Safely during the Coronavirus Outbreak
The Health and Safety Executive have produced guidance to help you work safely (be COVID-secure) and manage the risk associated with running your business at this time.
It includes practical measures you can take, for example putting in place social distancing measures, staggering shifts, providing additional handwashing facilities and how to talk with workers to help them stay safe.

Covid-19 | Tourism in Ilfracombe & District
The IDTA (Ilfracombe and District Tourism Association) is a volunteer run body that has nearly 90 members mainly from the leisure and tourism sectors of our economy. Right now as lockdown measures are easing, we have put together this short survey for business within the town and around. The purpose is two-fold. 1. To assess which businesses are thinking, planning or have re-opened/been open; and 2. To get a sense of outlook for trade.
Your response and survey results will help the IDTA and especially our TIC (Tourist Information Centre) plan to support members and the towns economy. Your responses are anonymous unless you wish to stay in touch.
The survey can be accessed by clicking the image
