Covid 19 - What you need to know - 2m announcement expected soon.
Both the Chancellor, Rishi Sunak, and Health Secretary, Matt Hancock, have in separate interviews with the BBC stated that an announcement regarding the 2m social distance policy will be made this week.
The Health Secretary said the distance could be lowered with "mitigations" to cut the risk of transmission.
The expectation is that a reduction in the 2m rule may be possible subject to the above "mitigations".
We expect that sector guidance will follow shortly after the above announcement as this issue will be critical for every business planning for an imminent reopening.
