Paramount to the operation of betting shops during the COVID-19 pandemic, is to ensure the safety of staff and customers while minimising the spread of the virus. As Ireland is now on Level 3 of the Living with Covid-19 plan, we have updated our Standard Operating Procedures to reflect the latest C19 measures that have been introduced.
These procedures are designed to complement your existing health and safety requirements and not to replace them. Application of these procedures, or an operators own version of these procedures, should be done on a best endeavour basis, considering the shop size, facilities, conditions and operators’ own risk assessment. They should be edited on a shop by shop basis to address localised risks.
Staff and customers should be reminded at every opportunity that their behaviour and adherence to the guidelines provided to them, is essential to protect staff, customers and their own families and friends.
