To support businesses and the self-employed to continue to work safely during the pandemic as the country moves to Step 4, BEIS have published updated Working Safely guidance. The guidance cover a range of different types of work and also includes guidance for people working in, visiting or delivering to other people’s homes. You can also find updated guidance on hosting weddings, civil partnership ceremonies and other celebrations in England during step 4 on GOV.UK.  The government have also extended NHS Test and Trace’s free workplace testing offer until the end of July, with 19 July as the final date to place orders. Free workplace testing will therefore now end on 31 July. After the end of July, we would encourage you to direct your employees to pharmacy collect and online ordering to continue accessing rapid lateral flow tests. As we continue returning to normal, twice-weekly testing remains key and we recommend people continue to test.
