Business Resources

The City is strongly advising that all businesses ask their staff to wear non-medical grade masks and face shields, especially those who handle and process food and groceries. 

The City also strongly suggests that the following measures be implemented immediately for the safety of staff and customers:

  • Require both store entrance and checkout lineups be marked with tape or cones every two metres, indicating where customers should stand while lined up;
  • Require plexi-glass or plastic barriers be installed in a secure manner at all checkouts at locations between the customer being served and the cashier so as to create a physical barrier between the customer and the cashier and to prevent physical contact between the customer and the cashier;
  • Where a business has multiple checkouts, require at least two metres of separation between the customer at one operating checkout and the cashier at the next closest operating checkout;
  • Where business spaces contain aisles, require the aisles be marked to show which direction a customer should walk while at the business premises;
  • Require that clear signs be posted indicating the maximum number of persons permitted in a store at any given time and limiting the number of customers to one person per sixteen metres squared of floor space open to customers;
  • Prohibiting the use of containers, reusable bags, or boxes provided by customers; and
  • Regulating the sale of bulk food items to ensure safe handling practices are used.

To help support businesses with these suggestions, the City of Langford has ordered a supply of floor decals including one-way arrows and physical distancing markers that will be made available at no cost to businesses. If you wish to obtain face masks, face shields or floor decals from the City, please call 250-478-7882 or email eocplanning@langford.ca. The City can also direct businesses to an installer of plexiglass shields, Plexi Class (250-382-7539 or pkm@island.net).
