NEWSFLASH: Updated Covid-19 Guidance for BCGA Members

In light of the fast-moving developments relating to covid-19, the BCGA has been working on updating the guidance issued on the 3rd March, as well as talking to several government departments about the importance of the industry. Some of the updates to the guidance include:

•    Additional suggestions for best practice working, based on government advice
•    Updates from the UK Government, including changes to statutory sick pay
•    Links to business resources which could be of use, such as helplines for HMRC and Companies  House, as well as a free crisis communications webinar which gives advice to businesses on coping with covid-19 from a PR perspective.

Moreover, the BCGA has had discussions with the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, the Department for Health, and the Department for Transport. We have had productive discussions with them about supply chain resilience, as well as going through scenario-planning to ensure that there will be business as usual for members. The BCGA will continue having an open-dialogue with these Government departments and if any members are approached directly by government, the BCGA would be happy to be involved in these discussions and elaborate further on our talks with officials if desired.
