We're updating our FAQs on a regular basis to keep you up to date with all the latest information.

Manufacturing Monitor

Our Manufacturing Monitor provides an accurate and timely barometer of the impact Covid-19 has had on the UK’s manufacturing sector.

Guidance for employers and businesses

Many manufacturers have raised concerns on the impact the Coronavirus is having, or may have, on their business. The Government has provided guidance for employers and businesses which covers: 

how to help prevent spread of Coronavirus;
steps to take should someone be suspected or confirmed to have Coronavirus in your business;
what advice to give to individuals who have travelled to specific areas; and
actions to take if your staff come into contact with someone who is self-isolating or is a possible or confirmed case of Coronavirus.
