City Corporation reacts to publication of roadmap for easing England lockdown restrictions

Reacting to the publication by the Government of the COVID-19 response - Spring 2021, which provides a roadmap out of the current lockdown in England, City of London Corporation Policy Chair Catherine McGuinness said:

“This roadmap provides welcome clarity on our way out of lockdown. It’s good to see the focus on data as a driver for progress. We look forward to additional information in the coming weeks, particularly on when workers can return to offices.

“Employers in the City have dedicated considerable resources to deliver COVID-secure workplaces and to restore confidence among their staff, many of whom are eager to return to their place of work.


“The City stands ready to welcome workers back when it is safe to do so. In the meantime we urge Londoners to continue to act responsibly by complying with the rules in order to reduce transmission, save lives and protect the NHS.”
