I am working through our delivery partners in Growth Platform to do everything that we can to understand what support you need, get that support to you, and to protect jobs and livelihoods through this very challenging time.

National Coronavirus restrictions
The Government have now set out their four-step plan for reopening, which begins on 8 March. There will be a minimum of give weeks between each stage – four weeks to collect an assess data, and then a week for people and businesses to prepare for the next step.
From 12 April some of the rules will change including which businesses can reopen. Read more here.
Medium and large sized businesses urged to order Covid-19 testing kits
You can order free rapid lateral flow tests to test your employees twice a week in the workplace.
If you have 10 or more employees, from early April you’ll be able to order tests for your employees to collect from their workplace and use at home twice a week. You can do this if you cannot provide testing in the workplace.
