  • Contacts of individuals with a suspected or confirmed case of the Omicron variant, must self-isolate, regardless of their age or vaccination status. See Section 4.2.

There will be a review in the next three weeks where further measures may be announced, the new variant Omicron should act as a reminder to us all as business leaders that Covid controls and disciplines are still a requirement and should be reinforced to staff and customers and followed by all in your business setting.

The use of staff bubbles to mitigate any outbreaks at work and minimise the loss of staff due to isolation should still form part of your Covid Risk Assessment and control plan.
