March 5th 2020


The UK yesterday has seen its biggest day-on-day increase in coronavirus cases, bringing the total number to 87.

Serious strategy planning has started as we have been informed that we should be braced for an increase. This could last for two or three months until a peak is reached.

All employers should be ready to implement strategies to protect their workforce from COVID-19 whilst ensuring continuity of operations. During an outbreak, all sick employees should stay home and away from the workplace.

What should employers do to regarding business contingency planning for Coronavirus?

  • Develop a business contingency plan which is flexible
  • Exercise using your business contingency plan ahead of time to ensure the plan doesn’t have any gaps
  • Share your business contingency plan with employees
  • Communicate your business contingency plan with partners and businesses they work with
