To support businesses prepare for the gradual lifting in restrictions, there is an emerging range of guidance and information on keeping workplaces, workers and customers safe. 

General Guidance

Sector Specific Guidance

Welsh Governement has provided sector specific guidance for businesses to safely operate and reopen.

  •  ‘We’re Good to Go’ - UK-wide industry standard and consumer mark that demonstrates tourism businesses are adhering to public health guidance, have carried out a COVID-19 risk assessment, and checked that they have the required processes in place. The scheme is free to join and open to all businesses across the tourism industry.

Guidance for working in other people’s homes - This document is to help employers, employees, and the self-employed and others (such as volunteers) working in or at people's homes (where the work does not require close physical contact) to understand how to work safely, taking measures to minimise the risk of exposure to COVID-19.

Support for childcare providers: coronavirus (COVID-19) - Childcare assistance scheme, loans, grants and support for childcare providers.

Test, Trace, Protect for Businesses/Employers

Your employees should NOT attend the workplace if they are showing ANY symptoms of coronavirus. They should self-isolate and book a test immediately.
