We are advised the if you are in one of these categories or are a supplier to them you are exempt from the 25% rule and you DO NOT NEED TO APPLY TO ESD.

That said you should still:

  1. Strictly enforce social distancing at your site and work diligently to keep your employees safe.
  2. Encourage employees who can to work from home.

If you are not a part of, or a supplier of, these sectors you must reduce your on site density to 25% of your total headcount.  that is to say that no more than 25% of your total headcount can be in the facility at any one time.

Have a pleasant evening.
