Engaging with customers

At Alert Level 2 businesses can have customers on their premises if they can meet public health requirements. This means businesses should:

  • have good contact registers, or contact tracing records, in place to record everyone who you interact with on your premises
  • maintain physical distancing of 1 metre between groups of customers, or 2 metres if not possible to keep contact tracing records
  • not have groups larger than 10 people
  • maintain a 2 hour time limit for groups to be on your premises.

Hospitality businesses should keep groups seated, separated, and use a single server if possible. This means each group has one server, though servers can each serve more than one table.
