AN online safety seminar is to be held for retailers to help protect staff, customers and businesses from COVID-19 over the festive period in Aberdeen.
Aberdeen City Council, NHS Grampian and Police Scotland will share the latest Scottish Government guidance on keeping the coronavirus at bay.
Topics will range from managing shoppers inside premises to queuing outside to advice for looking after staff through enhanced hygiene practices.
The seminar will also give retailers a chance to ask questions about COVID-19 safety.
Susan Webb, NHS Grampian’s director of public health, said: “Locations continually mentioned by those positive to our Test and Protect team include workplaces, shops, and hospitality venues – including pubs and restaurants – so it is vital we all do all we can to ensure the safety of staff and customers.
“We understand that the current climate continues to be a testing time for businesses across the region and we want to ensure we support everyone to play their part to ensure the situation does not worsen further by stopping the spread.”
The event will take place at 8.30am tomorrow.
