Lockdown Lifted

The day has come where the lockdown rules have been reduced and life as we know it can get back to some sort of normality, although it will never quite be the way it was before we at least now have a bit more freedom knowing that the vaccine rollout is having a positive effect all over the country.

As of yesterday (July the 19th) rules have been changed and eased to allow more freedom around the country. Please see the changes below (source – bbc news) –

Social distancing

  • No limits on how many people can meet
  • 1m-plus guidance removed (except in some places like hospitals and passport control when entering)
  • Face coverings no longer required by law, although the government still “expects and recommends” them in crowded and enclosed spaces
  • Some shops and transport operators will still require masks

Events and gatherings

  • Nightclubs can reopen
  • Pubs and restaurants no longer table-service only
  • No limits on guests at weddings and funerals
  • No limits on people attending concerts, theatres or sports events
  • No restrictions on communal worship

Travel

  • Guidance recommending against travel to amber list countries removed
  • Under-18s and fully vaccinated adults no longer have to self-isolate after visiting amber list countries – although those returning from France to the UK must still quarantine for 10 days

Other Changes

Limits on visitors to care homes will be removed.

From 16 August, most Covid restrictions in schools – including “bubbles” – will end.

From the same date, fully vaccinated adults will not need to self-isolate after contact with a positive case.

This is an extremely positive step for the Country and one that we have all been waiting a long time for. We must all continue to practice safeguarding steps to ensure that the numbers continue to drop but for the time being we can finally see light at the end of the tunnel.

We hope everyone enjoys this new sense of freedom and continues to stick to the rules in order for us to beat this virus once and for all.

Our team will continue to follow all protocols to ensure the safety of our clients, team members and the general public.

Have a great week everyone.

What Products are Lighting Up the Industry?

With this in mind we are going to look at some current products that are lighting up the fenestration and construction indust...
