Closed petition Publish a strategy setting out when COVID support will be provided to businesses

The Government should now have enough data from the effects of Covid on businesses to provide a clear plan for any future lockdowns. Business needs to know the criteria for furlough, support and potential shutdowns allowing them to plan accordingly.

More details

We would like to see a tangible threshold for when action is moved through the COVID alert system, which could be based on the amount of people testing positive per day or the death rate statistics. We would like the plan to include what support will be offered, the criteria for receiving it, when you can get it and how long for.

Clarity should be given on what triggers, grants, furlough, business rate reductions and VAT cuts.
