On the 14th of September, the Prime Minister set out the government’s plan to manage Covid throughout autumn and winter.

Ventilation is an important and effective mitigation to stop the spread of Covid, and businesses are advised to open windows, air vents and doors to let fresh air in, ensure that mechanical ventilation systems are set to maximise fresh air and minimise air recirculation, and to use outdoor space where practical.

People who have tested positive and their unvaccinated contacts will continue to be legally required to self-isolate. Financial support for those on certain benefits who are required to self-isolate will continue until the end of March.

Businesses should continue to check the safe working guidance for the latest updates.
