Since the 24th February 2022, the UK government has removed all remaining domestic Covid-19 restrictions in England. However, we will continue to remain vigilant and continue to take steps to reduce the risk of catching and spreading Covid-19.
Although there is no longer a legal requirement to self-isolate if testing positive, the virus is still with us and we have a responsibility to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of our employees as reasonably practicable.
It is therefore advised that any of our employees who test positive should stay at home for a minimum of 5 days and avoid contact with other people if at all possible. This could mean, working from home (if possible) or taking sickness absence if they feel unwell.
After 5 days, a Lateral Flow Test should be taken, followed by another the next day and if both tests are negative, it is safe to return to work. Those who test positive should avoid contact with anyone, including those living in the same household.
This statement will be regularly reviewed and any new government advice briefed and implemented. Additional information about COVID-19 may be found on the WHO and CDC and websites. For the most up-to-date information please see the gov.uk website:
