British Retail Consortium responds to Covid status certificates proposal

The British Retail Consortium has joined growing opposition to the introduction of Covid status certificates for shoppers.

The retail body has joined many businesses in rejecting Covid-status certificates, along with MPs that have vowed to oppose the plans under consideration.

As “nonessential” retailers, including toy shops, prepare to reopen next week, the BRC said checking Covid status certificates, or any form of documents, at the door would not be appropriate in a retail setting.
