With news of the latest national lockdown across the UK still ringing in our years, who would’ve thought at the beginning of all this that the pandemic would carry over into 2021? Unfortunately, COVID-19 continues to affect our daily lives, especially school students.
Safe Space, Safe School
What COVID-19 has taught us during 2020
I think the greatest lesson that we have learned all over the world in 2020 is about adapting to change. COVID-19 forced our hands and made us interact with our built environment very differently.
Reassuring Retail – Opening the Doors Safely
We’ve been down this road before. Back in the spring of 2020 during our first quarantine, it was the most disturbing interruption to UK business ever seen, at least since the war.
Why healthcare infection control has never been more vital
Healthcare settings are typically thought of as safe places. They are where you go when you are unwell and need medical attention, and they help people get better, not worse.

It is vital that any cleaning practices are effective and robust enough to stand up to the virus and other common bacteria. Retail cleaning must not fall back to traditional methods like mopping.
COVID-19 CLEANING: Remove, improve, and protect
The events of the first half of 2020 have left our society unrecognisable in many ways. From self-isolation and social distancing to working from home and avoiding public places, the COVID-19 crisis has affected everyone in some manner.
