Different businesses are adopting different approaches to keeping staff and customers safe.

At Hebden Tea on Minster Gates, they are asking browsers to stay away.

A sign on the window of the speciality tea supplier asks only those people who intend to make a purchase enter the shop.

For browsers, they have linked to their online store.
