We've been busy working to make Nottingham city centre a safe and welcoming environment for everyone following the reopening of non-essential business on 15th June.
With many of Nottingham's high-street businesses now reopened and our amazing community visiting the city centre again; it's important for this to continue in a way that puts everyone's safety and wellbeing first. To do our bit to help make this possible, we've created a messaging campaign throughout the city centre that encourages social distancing and safe, sensible ways to make your way around.
An easy and efficient way to maintain social distancing when traversing the city is by keeping to your left when walking. If you've ever visited London before then you will most likely be familiar with this system already. By adopting this system, it greatly reduces the chances of bumping into another person head-on when walking. Very soon we will be installing floor signs on some of the city's busiest streets to remind people to keep left where possible. Please do your part by looking out for them and following the advice when you can.
At the time of writing, the current government guidelines are to practice social distancing by keeping at least 2 metres apart from other people. If you are visiting the city then it is important to make a conscious effort to social distance where possible. You may notice our blue signs around the city encouraging social distancing. These are a friendly reminder from us, to you. Thanks for your help!
To help support business to reopen as safely as possible, It's in Nottingham have provided many of the city's business owners with floor signage, hand sanitiser, safety posters and other helpful items. If you plan on visiting Nottingham to shop, look out for blue signs before entering shops as they will show handy information such as where to queue. Once inside, you may also find useful guidance regarding one way systems, if the shop is accepting cash and other particulars. By looking out for, and following these signs, you will be enabling our city's businesses to operate as safely as they can.
Welcome back, Nottingham.
We'll be sure to update you as and when more safety features are added to the city centre.
This campaign has been created in partnership with Nottingham City Council.
