TO support businesses and the self-employed to continue to work safely during the pandemic as the country moves to step four of the COVID-19 restrictions strategy, the government has published updated its Working Safely guidance. The guidance covers a range of different types of work.
The government has also extended NHS Test and Trace’s free workplace testing offer until the end of July, with Monday 19 July as the final date to place orders. Free workplace testing will therefore now end on 31 July. After the end of July, the government advice is to direct your employees to pharmacy collect and online ordering to continue accessing rapid lateral flow tests. As the UK continues to return to normal, twice-weekly testing remains key and the government recommends people continue to test.
