COVID-19: New rules to protect workers during the coronavirus outbreak

New rules to protect workers during the coronavirus outbreak have been announced.

The regulations will mean the 2 metre social distancing rule will apply to any workplace, including homes, where work and repairs are being undertaken and outdoor spaces. 

All businesses will have to take all reasonable measures to ensure the 2 metre rule is maintained between people on their premises whenever work is being carried out.

For further information please visit the Gov.Wales website.

Taking all reasonable measures to maintain physical distancing in the workplace: supplementary guidance issued on 14 April 2020. This guidance supplements guidance issued by the Welsh Government on 7 April 2020 and focusses on the legal test applied by the regulations to maintain physical distancing in a work setting.

For further information please visit the Gov.Wales website.
