Updated COVID guidance for pregnant employees
The Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists (RCOG) has updated its guidance on coronavirus (COVID-19) and pregnancy following the government’s updated guidance.
Employers are reminded that if an employee has informed you in writing of their pregnancy you should carry out a risk assessment to follow the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 (MHSW).
The UK Government has maintained the precautionary measure of classing pregnant women as clinically vulnerable. The advice remains that pregnant women who can work from home should continue to do so.
