Sheffield offers advice for businesses as South Yorks enters Tier 3 COVID restrictions

Sheffield City Council is offering advice for businesses ahead of South Yorkshire’s Tier 3 COVID restrictions due to come into force this Saturday (24 Oct).

This ‘Very High’ restrictions mean that businesses in the following sectors will be closed: pubs and bars which do not serve substantial meals, betting shops, adult gaming centres, casinos and soft play centres.

Gyms will remain open, but gym classes will not be allowed. Social distancing guidelines must be followed between people from different households.

Businesses affected by the restrictions will be able to access the national Local Restrictions Support Grant for businesses required to close through restrictions imposed by Government.

Information about the scheme can be found here and further information will follow on Sheffield City Council’s website when the application process is open.

The Council has also outlined a £30 million package to support the region’s wider business base. However, it says that it is “awaiting further detail from government” on this.

“We know that the move to Tier 3 restrictions will impact on many businesses in Sheffield, and we are working hard to put support in place to help them navigate through this next stage of the pandemic,” said Councillor Julie Dore, Leader of Sheffield City Council.

“Our Business Sheffield advisors are on hand now to provide advice and guidance to businesses and ensure they have clarity on the new rules and their implications.

“We are now working to put a business grant scheme in place as quickly as possible to deliver the funding Government has promised today.

“Our local businesses have done a fantastic job of adapting to the changing climate this year and we will continue to support them to manage this next phase of COVID-19 restrictions.”
