Spot checks are set to be carried out at businesses across the Harborough district to ensure they are complying with Covid-19 guidelines.
Unannounced visits could take place at firms of all sizes and in all sectors - and any found not to be following the rules could even face prosecution.
Harborough District Council is working with the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) to contact businesses in the Harborough district to ensure they are Covid-secure and to help tackle coronavirus (Covid-19) in the local area.
As one of the first councils nationally to join the initiative, Harborough District Council will also support local public health authorities in gaining statistics and identifying any patterns in confirmed coronavirus
