IoD calls for the lifting of self-isolation rules on 19th July

09 Jul 2021

Responding to the Government’s announcement that self-isolation rules would be lifted on 16th August in England, a month after the removal of lockdown restrictions, the IoD’s Policy Director, Dr Roger Barker, said:

"The month-long disconnect between the lifting of restrictions and the ending of self-isolation is only going to exacerbate existing staff shortages and will inevitably force many businesses, particularly those in the retail and hospitality sectors, to close their doors.

“Either you lock down or you don’t. With infection rates now rocketing, this halfway house will just cause chaos and government must look to end self-isolation requirements on 19th July.”
