COVID-19 - UK.

The UK's Coronavirus Act 2020 broadened the range of emergency powers available to UK public bodies to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Coronavirus Act was designed to:

  • Give further powers to the UK government to slow the spread of the virus, including more stringent 'lockdown' measures.
  • Reduce the resourcing and administrative burden on public bodies.
  • Limit the impact of potential staffing shortages on the delivery of public services.
