As part of the COVID-19 Recovery strategy, the Government has set up taskforces to work with industry representatives to develop safe ways for businesses to open at the earliest point at which it is safe to do so.

Providers of medical or health services may remain open, including where they offer non-surgical cosmetic procedures for medical purposes. These services should take into account any guidance issued by regulators, the relevant professional body, Chief Professional Officers, and the National Health Service. Practitioners should ensure they have taken the necessary steps to become COVID-19 secure in line with health and safety legislation.
