Ian Price, CBI Wales Director, said:
“Business understands that there can be no return to normal until transmission is significantly curtailed. That’s why firms across Wales have worked tirelessly to keep their shops, offices and factories Covid secure for customers and employees.
“This latest announcement largely formalises processes that businesses are already doing. Support and advice around implementation, rather than an enforcement-first approach, on issues like ventilation will help to get premises get up to speed as quickly and safely as possible.
“The news that Wales will not follow in Scotland’s footsteps by restricting click & collect services is also hugely welcome. For many firms, click & collect has been a lifeline by providing an invaluable low-contact revenue stream during the pandemic.”
