Living with COVID


COVID-19 restrictions have ended but COVID-19 has not

We all have a personal responsibility to keep the workplace safe.

It is important to be mindful; living with and managing the virus will mean adopting behaviors to manage the risk.

Click below to read more on the current guidelines, which are subject to change. We highly recommend that businesses develop their own tailored communication outlining suggestions and expectations relating to COVID-19.

Latest Coronavirus Guide for Employers


Latest Gov Updates



New changes announced to 'Living with COVID': From the 1st April there are several changes coming as the government begin moving away from deploying regulations and requirements in England. The government will now:

  • Remove the current guidance on voluntary COVID-status certification in domestic settings and no longer recommend that certain venues use the NHS COVID Pass.
  • Update guidance setting out the ongoing steps that people with COVID-19 should take to minimise contact with other people. This will align with the changes to testing.
  • No longer provide free universal symptomatic and asymptomatic testing for the general public in England.
  • Consolidate guidance to the public and businesses, in line with public health advice.
  • Remove the health and safety requirement for every employer to explicitly consider COVID-19 in their risk assessments.
  • Replace the existing set of ‘Working Safely’ guidance with new public health guidance.



Boris Johnson announced his 'Living with COVID' strategy: the legal requirement to self-isolate after a positive Covid test will end on 24th February and free Covid tests will no longer be available for the general public from the 1st April. 

A spring booster was also announced for:

  • Adults over 75
  • Residents in older adults care homes
  • over-12s who are immunosuppressed



Plan B measures come to an end: this means mandatory face coverings in public places and Covid passports will both be dropped and individuals will no longer be advised to work from home. 

The current self-isolation regulations remain in place for the time, but when they expire on the 24th March, Mr Johnson has said he does not expect to renew them. The prime minister has also stated that if the data allows, the government would "seek a vote in this House to bring that date forward."
