Plans are afoot to get Brits back to work in ‘coronavirus-secure’ offices from mid-May.

A Treasury post-lockdown proposal includes allowing non-essential businesses to reopen.

The Times reports plans to keep workplaces free from the killer virus would include distancing and free-slowing sanitiser.

Chancellor Rishi Sunak is said to be involved in putting together measures to get Brits to work in a “safe and practical way.”

Employees are likely to be told to keep two metres social distancing, stay at home if they show any symptoms of coronavirus and communal spaces may be shut down. Hand-washing areas and hand gel would have to be made available.

Train companies are gearing up to provide fuller timetables within three weeks in preparation for the possible removal of some restrictions.
