- COVID-secure guidelines will become a legal requirement in retail and leisure sectors.
- If you can work from home, then you should do so.
- Business conferences, exhibitions and large sporting events will no longer go ahead.
This is further to the new venue requirements announced last week:

Businesses will be fined and could be closed if they breach these rules. For further details on today’s announcement, please visit the Government’s website.
