Coronavirus – Shop Local Gosforth

From Monday 23 March, the UK Government ordered all non-essential businesses to close to reduce the further spread of coronavirus. While most people will agree this is necessary, the potential consequences for businesses are significant. This is true both for businesses that have to close and those that can remain open but have to adapt quickly to new hygiene requirements.

The most important thing we can do is to follow Government advice to avoid spreading the disease. We can also continue to support those local shops that remain open to help them through this difficult time.

Below is a list of shops and services in Gosforth that we believe are currently still open, and whether they will deliver – especially important for those required to self-isolate.

The situation is changing rapidly though, so If you spot a business hasn’t been included that should be, or any other errors or omissions, please do let us know via the comments below and we’ll do our best to keep this list up to date.

For the most up to date information though, please do visit the shop’s website or give them a call.

Current NHS advice is available here, which (at 26/3/2020) includes:

  1. Stay at home and do not visit shops if you or someone you live with has symptoms of Coronavirus, or are at high risk of getting seriously ill.
  2. Minimise time spent outside of the home. Ensure you are 2 metres apart from anyone outside of your household, including when inside shops.
  3. Only shop for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible.
  4. Wash your hands with soap and water often – for at least 20 seconds.
  5. Wash your hands as soon as you get back home.

You can register here for email alerts to let you know when advice has been updated. Government guidance on which businesses should shut and which can remain open is here.
