Our recommendation is to carry out a risk assessment on each part of your operation to determine where you may still require preventative measures. It may be prudent to continue the use of masks with certain roles (for example where good ventilation is lacking and social distancing is not possible), working from home if you have a COVID-19 positive household member or presenting a negative RAT to the employer before starting work each day for five consecutive days. Consider the unique aspects of your work site and the volume of staff that you require to keep operations running smoothly
