Lush has announced it will continue to financially support its retail employees in UK and Ireland customer-facing roles in a bid to encourage staff to self isolate when they test positive for Covid-19 for the foreseeable future.
Additionally, the company is reportedly encouraging its retail staff who test positive to self isolate for 10 days, unless they have negative tests for two consecutive days from days five and six of isolation.
Since Covid reached the UK in 2020, Lush’s campaign for handwashing with bars from its soap collection has generated sales of 1.4 million units of soap in the UK, following guidelines from the NHS.
Lush said: “Lush will continue to maintain as safe a working environment as possible by encouraging staff to continue wearing face coverings, clean surfaces regularly, and wash their hands frequently.
“Lush are encouraging staff to use regular lateral flow tests while these are still available until 1st April 2022.”
