Coronavirus: Getting back to business and working safely

Back to work guidance

The government has announced a three-stage approach to getting people in England back to work. From 13 May, certain restrictions have been lifted to allow those who cannot work from home to return to work if it is safe to do so.

The government has published a series of guidance papers to help employers, employees and the self-employed understand how to work safely during the coronavirus pandemic. However, we know business leaders don’t have hours to sift through government documents so below is a neat summary that should let you access the parts you want to fast.
