Now that the government has lifted all restrictions under step 4 of the roadmap, businesses are being reminded to remove any outdated Covid-secure posters they may still have on display. Updated workplace posters are available on the coronavirus resource centre to remind businesses and customers about the new workplace guidance and the behaviours that people should still adopt: https://coronavirusresources.phe.gov.uk/covid-19-health-behaviours/resources/posters/
