As the world continues to battle the COVID-19 pandemic, many governments and employers are looking towards the future and how to start reopening workplaces and businesses. Many organizations are grappling with constantly changing guidelines and advice. It can feel overwhelming and confusing trying to ensure that staff and customers stay safe and well during their return to the workplace.
