Were still lucky here in Scotland, and in a low tier innour area. No full lockdown as of yet. I would expect it soon ans a doubt for one minute it will last a month be more like 2 till peak flu season us over.

We class locksmith as essential work, as we do a lot of work for the police service and most of hospital in scotland and parts of England.

I’m trying to work out: 

1) Am I am essential business?

2) is there any point in opening if everywhere else is closed?

we are not a hardware store, so I don’t think we can. 

I think it will be more a case of having work to do and is it worth opening, the High Streets will be fairly empty if it's like Wales at the moment

What else can firms get?

The government will also give firms:

  • Up to £3,000 per month under the Local Restrictions Support Grant if their premises is forced to close
  • £1,000 for every furloughed employee kept on until at least the end of January
  • £1,500 for every out-of-work 16-24 year-old given a ''high quality'' six-month work placement
  • £2,000 for every under-25 apprentice taken on until the end of January, or £1,500 for over-25s

A grant available to self-employed people affected by coronavirus has also been doubled to 40% of profits, with a maximum grant of £3,750 over a three-month period.
