Chamber responds to Welsh Government announcement
Paul Slevin, President of Chambers Wales South East, South West and Mid, said:
“Businesses in Wales have been committed to looking after their staff and customers throughout the pandemic and as we continue to observe alert level zero measures here in Wales, businesses can continue to play their part to operate safely and support their local community during the festive period and beyond.“Even though cases of the new omicron variant in Wales are currently low, the vaccination rollout and the booster programme remain the best way of protecting people. Businesses should be as accommodating as they can to their employees, offering flexibility to enable staff to receive their vaccines when they are invited.
“We’d also encourage companies to ensure that the risk assessments for their businesses are reviewed, updated and any necessary actions implemented regularly.”
