Do your bit.  

As a business owner you are likely to have made significant changes to continue operating or reopen your business from lockdown. In order to keep trading it is vital that businesses continue to follow the guidance and do their bit to keep employees and customers safe.

Government guidance states that people should work from home wherever possible. In sectors where homeworking is not possible, businesses should take all reasonable steps to ensure people work safely from a COVID-19 Secure workplace. A key consideration is how to modify your work setting to prevent the spread of the virus. The government has created a reopening tool to help employers check what their workplace needs to do to keep people safe which can be accessed here
