New Working Safely guidance has now been published

Date: Thursday 22 July 2021

To support businesses and the self-employed to continue to work safely during the pandemic as England moves to Step 4, the Government has 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. This also includes updated guidance on hosting weddings, civil partnership ceremonies and other celebrations in England during step 4 on GOV.UK.

The government has also extended NHS Test and Trace’s free workplace testing offer until the end of July, although 19 July was the final date to place orders. Free workplace testing will therefore now end on 31 July. After the end of July, businesses are encouraged to direct 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 the government recommends people continue to test.

The Step 4 guidance for more detail on what has now changed and what you should do to protect yourself and others can be found HERE. The Cabinet Office has published a new communications toolkit which you can use, alongside downloadable creative assets recently published by Public Health England, should you wish to share the latest COVID-19 information with employees and wider networks.
