A ‘Direction to Close’ notice has been revoked for West Bridgford bar
The Zinc Bar, 33-35 and 35a Central Avenue, West Bridgford, which was forced to close due to significant breaches of COVID-19 rules, will be allowed to reopen again.
Nottinghamshire County Council Trading Standards and Rushcliffe Borough council Environmental Health officers have been working with the bar’s proprietors to help them put systems in place to make the premises COVID-secure.
The bar now displays an official NHS QR code poster, is implementing social distancing measures, asking customers to wear a face covering when required, encouraging staff and customers to use hand sanitiser and is following legal requirements required to help tackle the rising number of cases .
Jonathan Gribbin, Director of Public Health at Nottinghamshire County Council, said:
“We appreciate the efforts by the owners and are satisfied that they have taken reasonable steps to ensure the bar no longer presents a serious threat to the health of its customers and staff.
“We will continue to support businesses to help them adapt to new COVID-19 regulations and it is vital that businesses comply to help keep people safe, and to keep businesses open.
“As Nottinghamshire enters Tier 3, we all need to be extra vigilant and follow the measures in place to help reduce the spread of infection.”
From 6pm (29 October 2020), the Direction to Close notice was revoked.
