As you are aware, in order to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the Prime Minister has placed the UK in a lockdown.
The details of the restrictions now in place can be found here Full_guidance_on_staying_at_home_and_away_from_others.
The guidance states that all travel is prohibited except for a limited number of reasons including, ‘Travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home’. At this time, our interpretation is that this would include employees travelling to manufacturing operations, including tanneries.
However, there are reports that this direction is causing confusion and we will seek clarification.
