The Government is taking further measures to stem the recent rise in the number of coronavirus cases, which does not look like a gradual move upwards but a more obvious spike. The rate of positive tests has increased amongst younger people and appears consistent across the country.

There are several local restrictions because of Covid-19 and the Government is now reducing the number of social gatherings in England from 30 to 6 commencing 14 September. The law change will ban larger groups meeting anywhere socially indoors or outdoors although it will not apply to schools, workplaces or Covid-secure weddings, funerals and organised team sports.

The death rate remains low and we all hope this surge has a very different outcome to the last one. Like many businesses we have taken steps to maintain social distancing and protect our employees and clients and think that now it is a good time for all of us to reiterate these and make sure everyone is protected as best they can.

The Government has produced a series of guides for working safety and these are available for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

We’re operating as usual here at PKB to ensure that we’re on hand to provide you and your business with the support you need during these challenging times.
