The ACT COVID-19 IBD Reopening Resources and Guidance 2021

Posted on in Cycles News

ACTThe ACT's new guide for IBDs getting back up and running safely after business closure.

Following the lifting of the UK's third lockdown, the ACT has released further guidance for bike shops that are now reopening after making the difficult decision to shut up shop in the interests of safety for themselves, their employees and their customers. Since closure, it may now be difficult to know how to safely reopen in a way that satisfies all safety requirements.

The aim of the document is to enable IBDs to operate efficiently while implementing social distancing and other safety measures with various advice and resources.

The ACT welcomes the decision to reopen as we believe that bicycle shops, as well as cycling in general, can play a key role in tackling this pandemic, in was such as providing a lower-risk option for key workers to get to and from work, supporting key workers using bicycles for deliveries and providing a safer form of exercise (as long as social distancing measures are kept), which benefits both physical and mental health.

The guide provides:

  • Advice on getting back up and running safely after business closure
  • Advice on sourcing materials for shielding/social distancing
  • A COVID-19 re-opening an empty building checklist
  • How to let the UK know that you are open
  • Advice on workplace COVID-19 testing
  • How to use social media to invite customers back
  • Addition resources
