Return to work will see a number of new protocols, including no hand shaking




If you’re a germophobe then you’re in luck as hand shaking is about to become a thing of the past by the looks of things.

Companies, offices and workers going back to work are all advised that new protocols will be put into place before the economy gets going again.

There’ll be no hand shaking, no one can return to work who recently had covid-19 or was in contact with someone who had it. Likewise, people who have any symptoms cannot go back to work for at least 14 days after all symptoms have cleared.

Some office units are going to remove doors and have more open plan offices. Some companies will be removing workstation units to make more room so that proper social distancing can be obtained.

Hand washing facilities will be more freely available and people must cover their mouth while coughing or sneezing.

More details are likely to emerge as the May 18th deadline draws closer.
