The Prime Minister addressed the nation yesterday (10 May 2020) announcing measures regarding lockdown regulations across the country.

Businesses looking for an update on what measures the government would make to take the UK forward during the coronavirus pandemic, were updated on the following:

We can all help control the virus if we all stay alert. This means:

  • Anyone who can’t work from home, for instance those in construction or manufacturing, should be actively encouraged to go to work
  • You should avoid public transport if at all possible
  • Work from home if you can, but you should go to work if you can’t work from home
  • Ensure you are safe at work we have been working to establish new guidance for employers to make workplaces COVID-secure

Further detail on the UK government’s new lockdown rules will be published over the next 36 hours.
