County council chiefs are calling on people in Lichfield and Burntwood to help support local economies by returning to work safely in offices.
Cllr Philip White, who is also the cabinet member for economy and skills, said it was important that people returned to their workplace for some of the week.
He added that such a move would help support shops, eateries and other businesses which have been hit by the pandemic.
“We understand people may be anxious if they have been away for some time, but evidence suggests that offices present a very low safety risk and have real benefits in terms of teamworking.
“Seeing work colleagues face-to-face again can be beneficial to people’s mental health.
“Coming back into town will also make a real difference to service businesses which have been hit hard by the pandemic in recent months and need the custom of office workers.”Cllr Philip White, Staffordshire County Council
