IBVTA issues guidance on reopening vape stores safely
The IBVTA has issued its members guidance on how to reopen vape stores safely. The guidance document has been shared with Public Health and Business Ministers, Public Health England, local authority Directors of Public Health, and Trading Standards.
It is vital that if vape businesses prepare to re-open stores, they do so having in place the correct measures & procedures to protect their staff members and customers, and following all government guidance. The IBVTA recommends that stores must only re-open once the best practises outlined in this document are in place, allowing a safe environment for staff to work in and customers to shop in.
It is incredibly important that vaping businesses do not lose sight of the reason for opening their stores. We are pleased that our sector will soon have the opportunity to serve customers, as for many people, their local vape shop will be the only thing standing between them and their next tobacco cigarette.
The guidance covers key considerations including social distancing, in store sales process and sanitising, as well as operational measures
