Knepp Wildland Shop Hygiene Policy & Extra Procedures for Covid-19

Last updated on February 20th 2021


While Covid-19 remains a threat we have all the required practices in place in order to keep our staff and customers as safe as possible. We will continually revise these procedures according to advice from government.

We need to rely on customers to observe the restrictions and remain aware and considerate at all times.

We have always prided ourselves on our standards of cleanliness and hygiene and have a 5-star food hygiene standard rating in our shop. These are the additional steps we are now taking to minimise contamination risks to our customers and staff:

What we will do:

  • Increase signage to encourage social distancing
  • Provide hand sanitiser at the entrance to the shop
  • Restrict entry to the shop to one household at a time
  • Restrict handling of products
  • Use contactless payments where possible
  • Ensure a daily ‘deep clean’ of the shop
  • Regularly disinfect touch points such as door handles, till screens, taps, shop shelves and other high traffic areas
  • Require all staff to wash their hands regularly
  • Require all staff to wear a face covering
  • Require all staff to follow the guidance issued by health organisations with regards to self-isolation in the event of any symptoms

What you can do:

  • Wear a face covering
  • Ensure you maintain a distance of at least 1 metres (3 feet) from anyone you are not already in contact with.
  • If there is a queue for the shop, remain 1 metre apart from others in the queue
  • Use the hand sanitiser provided before entering the shop
  • If you happen to cough or sneeze, cover your mouth and nose with a flexed elbow or tissue – throw the tissue away immediately and wash your hands
  • Try to be as decisive and efficient as possible when selecting your purchases
  • Use contactless payment for your purchases
  • Be vigilant and aware as you leave the shop and re-enter the car park to ensure you remain a safe distance away from others
