What does the removal of Plan B COVID Restrictions mean for office working?

With the removal of the Plan B COVID restrictions that took effect on January 27th, England returns to Plan A following the success of the booster programme. The new guidance in place set by the government means that:

  • Face coverings are no longer a legal requirement in any setting
  • The NHS COVID Pass will no longer be a legal requirement at venues but still can be used on a voluntary basis
  • Any introduction of face coverings must be reviewed by local authorities and removed at the earliest opportunity

Removal of PLAN B COVID restrictions

This can see life return to ‘normal’ for many people across the UK but it does leave some doubts in some people’s mind as to whether it’s too soon. This can be more prevalent in office settings where people are situated closely to one another and with meetings taking place, interaction with people you necessarily wouldn’t usually be around can’t be avoided. Data from Public Health England shows that in 2020, there were more outbreaks in office scenarios in comparison to supermarkets, warehouses, restaurants, construction sites and cafes combined.

The above shows that it is in fact essential for office environments to still install office partitioning to try and combat this problem to prevent further spreading and at the very least, to ease worries in staff’s minds.
