COVID guidance for member betting and gaming businesses


As the UK government has confirmed their plans to go ahead (for England) with the lifting of legal COVID restrictions from 19 July 2021, they’ve urged a cautious approach as cases continue to rise.

Although the legal duty under the Coronavirus Act has lifted, the onus has moved to employers, who still have legal duties under the Health and Safety at Work Act to:

* Provide a safe working environment for employees (so far as is reasonably practicable).

* Ensure that their business activities do not cause harm to others (so far as is reasonably practicable)

Our teams have compiled and collated the most recent advice and guidance on reducing the risks from the Coronavirus (COVID-19) virus to you and your betting and gaming business.

We will continue to update this page regularly so please keep checking back to ensure that you have the most up to date information.
