Covid-19: Strengthened measures in Wales

Newsflash for LBG members

Strengthened protective measures – what that means for you

Last Thursday First Minister, Mark Drakeford, strengthened zero protective measures to keep people safe and help reduce high levels of coronavirus in Wales.

Here’s how LBG has reacted to the changes and how they will affect you:

There’s new guidance too around self-isolation, with those who are fully vaccinated being asked to self-isolate until they receive a negative PCR test if someone in their household tests positive for COVID. You must follow this advice.

LBG’s emergency paid leave provisions were withdrawn from 1st November which served staff well and helped many through exceptionally difficult circumstances so we’re disappointed that they’ve been withdrawn when we’re seeing infections and deaths on the rise again. But the bank has committed to give line managers flexibility and discretion to support individual circumstances.

Getting support from Accord

If you’re impacted by COVID and don’t think you’re being treated fairly, please call or email Russell Waterhouse for advice on your situation - Email: [email protected] - Phone: 07984 602 729.

The position will be reviewed in light of any further changes by the Welsh Government.
