The advice given by government agencies across the world has varied significantly and is subject to change on a daily basis. Until Public Health England, The Resuscitation Council, or The Health & Safety Executive decide otherwise, it will be business as usual for us, with the addition of the below guidance.
As members of The First Aid Industry Body (FAIB), we are following their guidance. FAIB, in turn, have adopted the Resuscitation Council UK guidance for training settings.
