Coronavirus Support

The COVID-19 pandemic has placed huge challenges on the tourism industry in Southend as the profound effect of the quarantines, lock-downs, social distancing and travel restrictions applied across the globe took hold


Southend Tourism Partnership is committed to supporting businesses across the borough to reopen in a way that is both safe for customers and staff in terms of social distancing and hygiene, whilst helping to spread the word that our fantastic town is back and open for business!

Preparation is vital for a smooth transition as we gradually re-open our venues and play our part in the national economic recovery. To help visitors have a safe and enjoyable visit, we're assisting businesses by supplying a range of safety measures and notices that can be used to help ensure your business is Covid secure. 

The latest government guidance for tourism and hospitality businesses on how to operate a Covid Safe environment can be found here.
