As part of the key workers and national infra structure Lifeline are continuing to operate as near normal as possible, with a few exceptions. Lifeline will continue to follow all ‘WHO’ (World Health Organisation) and Government Advice & Guidelines.

People working in these sectors who are essential to national infrastructure are “Key Workers” for the purposes of the Government’s guidance on COVID-19.” This position still remains in place.
