Reducing the impact of Plan B on your business

The government’s announcement that Plan B is being implemented across the country. This comes amid growing Covid infection rates and the realisation that the Omicron variant spreads much faster than previous variants of the disease. The changes being made are:

  • From Friday: face masks are legally mandated in most public spaces, excluding pubs, restaurants, gyms and other similar venues
  • From Monday: people should work from home if they can.
  • Very soon: NHS covid passes will need to be shown for nightclubs, unseated venues from 500 to 4,000 people and all venues over 10,000 people.
  • In addition people identified as being in contact with someone with Covid is required to test every day for a period of time.

Reducing the impact of Plan B on your business is vital. Here’s how we can help you:

Let people spread out and feel more comfortable

Giving your customers more room helps allay fears about catching Covid. Erecting a marquee in your carpark or on your gardens will give people more space. Adding space generates more confidence they can still go where they want and need to, and not get infected.

For hospitality venues

Whilst this is a precaution and face masks aren’t required in hospitality venues, it is bound to have an impact. People may worry about having to isolate over Christmas if they catch the coronavirus. Going into 2022, we all hope that further research will show that Omicron is less severe than Delta. If it is, relaxing of the restrictions can happen. But better safe than sorry.

For businesses

If your staff cannot work from home, helping them to spread out will make them feel more secure too. Government recommendations about opening windows regularly aren’t going to be looked upon kindly with temperatures as low as they have been recently. As we go into 2022, they are going to stay low for some time to come. Throughout the last 18 months, we have provided marquees for use as canteens, temporary changing rooms and additional office space for companies across London and the South East.

For schools and colleges

Whilst most schools will be closed by the 17th December, the new year is likely to come in with the restrictions still in place. We have provided temporary classrooms for many schools, including Rambert Ballet School and Lady Eleanor Holles School in SW London.

For gyms and Leisure Centres

Normally the new year would be the busiest time of year for gyms and leisure centres. People will be looking to shed the pounds added over the festive season. Covid may impact your ability to get quite so many people through the door. Expanding your space, so fitness classes can be more spread out is a great way of protecting revenues and your members.

Don’t worry about the temperature

Winter means low temperatures and marquees are not normally considered a winter location. Fear not, today’s marquees can be just as warm and comfortable as your main building. Combining insulation in the ceiling, hard walls and warm-air heating will ensure your customers do not need their winter coats.
