CLC updates rules on self-isolation

The Construciton Leadership Council, of which ECA is a key member, has published an new briefing document in relation to COVID-19 and self-isolation.

Following the relaxation of COVID-19 rules on 19 July 2021, and with awareness of the growth in cases of COVID-19, the CLC wants to support construction businesses to understand the rules and UK Government policy in this area.

The briefing covers:

  • When must a worker self-isolate?
  • What does it mean to be a ‘contact’?
  • What must workers do if they are told to self-isolate by NHS Test & Trace or a contact tracer?
  • What must workers do if they receive an alert from the NHS COVID-19 app?
  • What changes are expected on 16 August 2021?
  • Are there any exemptions from self-isolation for construction workers?
  • What is Government policy on workplace testing and home testing?
