The Government is updating its information for businesses on a daily basis and it is widely anticipated that a statement will be made today or tomorrow about help to be made available for those who are self-employed.
“We are seeing businesses close their doors, some change opening hours and operating practices to continue to serve their customers and a reduced footfall as employees work from home where they are able, and people heed official advice to only make essential trips out.
“Keeping everyone safe and healthy, minimising the spread while supporting Andover businesses is key.
