On 23 March 2020, the Prime Minister addressed the nation and instructed the British people to stay at home. I know that this is difficult and worrying but it is right that the Government has taken these unprecedented decisions and these extraordinary measures. Unless we get Coronavirus under control then the danger is that it will overwhelm all of our vital services and cause much greater loss of life.
In spite of everything, lots of businesses have already shown amazing initiative and commitment to helping people affected by coronavirus.
The C-19 Business Pledge is all about encouraging as many businesses as possible to get involved and then helping them do that faster and better by sharing all the great work that’s already been done.
There is now a very real possibility that the U.K. Government may soon ask all persons over 70 years of age and persons who are vulnerable due to pre-existing medical conditions to self isolate to protect themselves from contracting the COVID-19 Virus.
