BP garages and Iceland stores forced to shut as pingdemic grinds UK to halt
The Metro says supermarkets and petrol stations are being forced to close due to staff shortages caused by the NHS Test and Trace system.
As the ‘pingdemic’ ramps up across the country, Iceland has shut ‘a number of stores’ as too many members of staff have been told to self isolate by the Covid app.
The supermarket chain say 1,000 employees, or 4% of its workforce, have had to stay at home for this reason.
It has been forced to reduce trading hours in some stores and says it will hire 2,000 extra staff to cover absences following an advertising campaign.
