Covid - Clients have had to shut the site on their own accord as there was no government instruction - as such does this count as a relevant matter? @steven.evans13

@stevencevans @Mike_Tiplady any thoughts on the above question

If a Client shut its site at their own volition (and not because the Government said so) then this would be a Relevant Event under Clause 2.26.6 (prevention by the Employer) and a Relevant Matter under Clause 4.21.5. That would give rise to a right to an extension of time and loss and expense. Regards. Mike
