Government Support & Guidance

Updated Wednesday 20 May 2020

The UK government is enacting a range of measures to support businesses dealing with the impact of the virus. The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy has summarised a number of these measures on its website. The government has also launched its Business Support website to help businesses find the right support, advice and information to help with the impact of COVID-19. The FAQ’s section in particular is proving popular.

Current guidance is that where it is impossible for people to work from home, for example on construction sites and in manufacturing operations, then assuming they are not displaying symptoms and do not need to self-isolate, they should go to work. Full guidance on staying at home and away from others (Section 4 – Going to Work).
