Recent media news about the lessening impact of the Covid pandemic across the UK is progressively becoming more reassuring as the vaccination roll – out continues.
While this does not mean we are at ‘normal’ some changes to restrictions imposed upon and by Orchard have become possible.
As the country progresses through the government’s ‘roadmap’ to easing lockdown, in common with all employers Orchard is implementing a plan for the safe return to the workplace noting that the timetable and rules set out in any ‘roadmap’ for the progressive easing of lockdown may continue to change.
At present Orchard continues to implement social distancing in the office and so further protect ourselves, families, clients and all others during the course of the ‘roadmap’ return and for the immediate future the Orchard office will remain closed for all personal visits.
However, property inspections having been reduced during the preceding lockdowns are now being reinstated subject to a continuation of existing social distancing measures. The holding of meetings shall in generality remain in abeyance as a precaution and is set for review in line with future government guidance.
-The preceding will remain subject to review in the wake of continuing HMG official guidance –
