Nicholls Covid-19 Update 22nd July 2020
From Friday 24th July 2020 the rules around the wearing of face coverings is changing. The government has mandated that everyone has to wear a face covering when entering a retail premises or enclosed public space where there are people they do not normally meet, unless they are exempt from doing so for reasons such as health, age or equality.
We therefore ask that all customers and visitors entering our trade counter, shop areas and showrooms wear a face covering in line with Government legislation. Face coverings do not have to be worn in outdoor areas of our premises when physical distancing can be maintained in line with legislation. You will see clear signage in all of our branches and showrooms showing where we require you to wear face coverings.
All Nicholls staff have been briefed on their requirement to wear face coverings and issued with appropriate PPE.
We continue to Risk Asses all of our branches and showrooms to ensure we meet the governments Covid Secure workplace guidelines. In addition we have the following measures in place across our branch network;
• Clear signage showing how to safely distance and follow hygiene guidelines.
• Physical distancing in our office areas.
• Our shop / trade counter areas clearly marked in 2m zones.
• Clear instructions to all Nicholls team members on how to maintain cleanliness in their working environments.
• Dedicated cleaning stations for staff.
• Protective screens added to all our trade counter and shop areas.
Since the onset and subsequent easing of U.K Lockdown, our priority at Nicholls has been to protect all the Nicholls team, our customers and local communities that we serve. We therefore ask for your support in doing this whilst we continue to support you and your business during these challenging times. Please continue to respect our guidelines and all Nicholls team members when visiting our branches.
Once again we would like to thank every member of the Nicholls team and all of our customers for their ongoing support and understanding.
