Hands Face Space
The 9 September bulletin also provided a link to a Hands Face Space video. Additional PHE resources supporting Hands Face Space can be found here.
In addition to the nationwide, 6 person limit on social gatherings that will come into place on Monday, there have been some updates to local guidance. More information will be available on GOV.UK here.
Launch of the NHS Test and Trace App
Following a successful pilot, it has today been announced that the app will launch in England and Wales on 24 September. The NHS Test and Trace app (found here) will provide users with local risk information, alert them if they have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive and has a built-in QR scanner to check-in at venues. As such, local businesses will be required to display NHS QR posters so visitors and customers can start checking in safely and securely to venues from 24 September.
Bounce Back Plans
On 8 September, the Dept for International Trade announced a series of new measures to support businesses in the consumer and retail industry to export overseas as part of efforts to help the sector recover from Coronavirus. More information is available here.
