Surrey County Council has launched a reporting tool where residents can raise their concerns about businesses or venues not following Covid-19 restrictions.

Worries cover breaches such as incorrect use of PPE and handwashing facilities, inadequate barriers or protection and failure to make risk assessments.

All reports will be investigated by Buckinghamshire and Surrey Trading Standards, working closely with Environmental Health and Surrey Police when appropriate.

Ruth Hutchinson, the council’s director of public health, said: “Infection rates are still very high, so we are keen to work with businesses and organisations to ensure they are operating in safe and controlled environments, not putting staff and the public at risk.

“We are thankful to everyone who is following the rules and staying home to help prevent the spread of the virus.”

Anyone can report a business they are concerned about on the Surrey County Council website.
