COVID Member’s Briefing

Changes to COVID-19 rules and regulations 02/05/2022


Members should be aware that the rules surrounding COVID, and in particular around self-isolation have changed. Similarly, testing for the general population has ended. Government advice for those with COVID symptoms is to stay at home and avoid contact with others. This has reduced from a legal requirement to advice. Patently transmission of COVID within the workplace remains a risk, especially when those who have symptoms and cannot work from home come into work. Employers should therefore consider how to approach the ongoing management and risk of outbreaks of COVID within the workplace. Employers can continue to operate with any measures that they deem appropriate, and should update risk assessments accordingly. If you have any further questions, the team will be happy to help.
