Report issues or seek guidance

Environmental health officers have new responsibilities to ensure appropriate public health measures are being followed during the coronavirus pandemic. They can also give advice and guidance around the new regulations.

You can report a business that should not be open or is open outside of permitted hours or is failing to ensure that staff and customers maintain safe social distancing and hygiene measures.

We'll investigate and where necessary deal with the business using powers in the Health Protection (Coronavirus, Business Closure) (England) Regulations 2020, working with police colleagues where appropriate.

Offending businesses could also be issued with written warning and if they continue to flout the regulations, they may be served with a notice to close.

You can report any non-compliance or seek guidance from us:
