Protecting your Team at Work

As more of us return to the office, we need to remaining vigilant and do all we can to prevent enforced shut downs and staff absences caused by illness or the need to “self isolate” .Creating and maintaining a Covid-safe environment has never been more important.

As Lateral Flow Testing is rolled out we understand it can feel daunting, but it is a process we should all consider to help protect and keep staff safe and, help to reduce the spread of Coronavirus.

However, as Steve reflects within his blog, is there not a little more room to go a little more “route 1”?!?
