LONDON (Bywire News) - The government is working alongside the sectors impacted by the coronavirus restrictions, in particular those facing shortages in staff due to self-isolating measures. 

On Thursday, a spokesperson for Boris Johnson said, "We're obviously aware of the impact that is being felt by some industries and we are obviously working closely with them, specifically on supermarket shelves and food,"

He added, "We have a robust and resilient food supply chain in the UK."

Government guidance for businesses is set to be published shortly.
