On Monday 5 July, my Rt. Hon. Friend the Prime Minister set out the details of the final stage of the roadmap and our approach for managing Covid as we learn to live with the virus. The ‘Working Safely’ guidance will be updated in advance of moving to step 4 which will happen on 19 July. It will set out a range of mitigations businesses should consider when carrying out their risk assessment.
