Show that you’re COVID-19 secure

The government has created a series of posters and badges which businesses can display to show they are following #StayAlert 
best practice. 

There are downloadable posters, which you can print and put up in your premises, and content for your website and social media channels.  
They’re a great way to give confidence to all your customers, and your staff.

On your social media

Use the hashtag #StayAlert

Let people know about the steps you’ve taken to ensure the safety of your customers and staff.

Consider making a video

The government has also suggested making a video of the steps you’ve taken to follow #StayAlert best practice.

It is a great way of showing your local community and customers that they can be confident you’re providing your amazing meals safely and will help other restaurants across the country learn from your example. 

What to show in your video

You may choose to include all or just some of these points.

  • The name of your company
  • A brief outline of what your business does and the size of your business
  • Where your business is based and how many premises you have
  • Explanation of your businesses situation since lockdown e.g.
    • you’ve been able to stay open because you took safety steps immediately,
    • you could have stayed open but chose not until the situation became clearer
    • you have opened again, and the reasons why and how you did this
    • you weren’t able to continue operating but have now put measures in place to open again
  • Let people know about the measures you’ve introduced to enable to continue/restart operations e.g.
    • Social distancing
    • Hygiene
    • Staggered shifts
  • Tell people about the measures you’ve put in place to reassure your staff that they can continue/come back to work and work safely
  • Consider involving staff, talking about their perspective on the measures you’ve put in place, and why this has given them confidence to continue/return to work


More hints:

  • Don’t worry about it being polished footage – clear, authentic footage/imagery is more engaging and trusted
  • Include the ‘Stay Alert’ branding wherever possible 
  • Use the hashtag #StayAlert when you post this video on your social media
  • Let us know if you’ve made a video and we can help to promote it on our own channels too
