Covid-19 Restrictions and Support

The implementation of public health measures to control the spread of COVID-19 is a devolved matter, therefore while the UK Government makes the rules for England. Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland have their own Governments who have the power to make and enforce their own rules. You can find pages with the full relevant guidance below:

England 

Northern Ireland 

Scotland 

Wales

It is important to remember that the closer you are to someone, the greater the risk of infection, wearing masks or face coverings will reduce the risk of transmission, meeting outside also reduces risk, as does good ventilation.

This guidance is continually changing therefore we would advise that you check the website of your relevant Government. Workplaces should have plans in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
