Identifying a Potential COVID-19 Outbreak – Information from HBBC

Please find below information from Public Health England and the NHS Test and Trace Service on key steps your organisation can take to quickly identify and contain any potential Covid 19 outbreak.

The attachments have been specifically designed for two business sectors, one of which will be suitable for your business. Besides advice on what you should do to manage a possible outbreak, the information provides advice on prevention of Covid 19 as well as information sources.

It is hoped you find the Action Card for your business sector useful, and should you require any more information on prevention measures, please contact Environmental Health Services at

Footfall in Hinckley Town Centre

BID footfall monitors show that footfall continues to recover – last week it was -28% compared with the same week in 2019 and is better than the -30% average recorded in towns across the UK. Cities remain at -47% on average as only 1 in 13 office workers have returned to work.

Hinckley is very much missing our events which bring so much extra footfall to our town centre, so please do support the SHOP HINCKLEY HALF-TERM event being organised by Hinckley BID. For more information on that, please contact
