I run a pet store/veterinary business – can I continue to operate?

All pet stores/veterinary businesses providing items for health and welfare of animals, including animal feed and medicines, animal food, pet food, animal supplies including bedding can remain open. If you do open your business then you must ensure that you put in place measures to ensure that social distancing of both your workforce and customers is maintained. You must also ensure adherence to hygiene guidelines and are strongly advised to wear face coverings. Telephone and internet sales would be preferable where possible. Any bulk delivery of animal foods should be also in adherence to hygiene guidelines.
