NPA COVID-19 guidance updated

5th Jan 2021 / By Alistair Driver

As a second lockdown begins for much of the UK, the NPA's COVID-19 guidance for members has been updated. 

The updates include details of the financial support measures that have been extended and opened to business owners – there are grants and schemes open now, while the furlough scheme was extended before Christmas.

They may not be applicable to all producers, but there will be some, with diversifications, that will be able to apply, NPA senior policy adviser Rebecca Veale said. 

You can view the comprehensive guidance – which also includes advice on keeping staff safe, managing the risk, testing and what to do when staff test positive or have to self-isolate, and coping with issues such as animal welfare problems caused by plant closures - in the Members Hot Topics Area HERE.
