A Sheffield City Council spokesperson said: “We know that Covid-19 has created many challenges for our local businesses and we are working to understand the impact of the pandemic so we can better support you.

“This is the second business survey undertaken by the Sheffield Business Response Group.  The first survey provided us with some really important information that has changed the way businesses are supported.

“For example, many businesses highlighted that they found the it difficult to keep track of government guidance.

“In response to this, we have taken action to update businesses regularly when there are changes to the relevant government guidance, and created a hospitality guide to help businesses in that sector understand the guidance to open up safely.

“Please help us to provide us with further insight by completing the survey below by 5th August.”
