The phased re-opening of schools together with outdoor markets in England this week, to be followed by non-essential retail on June 15th, heralds the essential re-starting of our economy. Safety measures must be put in place in all establishments to maintain the required 2 metre social distancing we’ve all become accustomed to. We are also now able to meet up in groups outdoors from different households, of no more than 6 people, as long as social distancing guidelines are observed.
Our government is obviously taking a very cautious approach and will be watching how the gradual unlocking is affecting the ‘R’ value.
We recognise that during this pandemic, you will have adopted some very different work patterns – such as how you receive goods and paperwork etc.
We want you to know that we will work closely with you to fall in-line with these new practices, so that we can help to minimise the risk of infection thereby helping our communities and our brilliant NHS.
Wishing you and all your families the very best in these highly challenging times.
