The Government announced yesterday that from 1 August 2020 clinically extremely vulnerable people will no longer be advised to shield. This is a huge change for those who have been shielding since March 2020.
From 1 August 2020, those who need to work and cannot do so from home will be able to return to work as long as the workplace is COVID secure, adhering to the guidance available. It will be extremely important for workplaces to ensure that risk assessments are carried out and communicated to the employees as this will support those who may feel anxious about returning to work.
