Dorset Chamber chief executive Ian Girling said: “This is excellent news.
“It is a very welcome and positive announcement which will be a shot in the arms for many businesses in Dorset and the local economy.
“We need to get back to work and back to business. Temporary working arrangements have been manageable, but we need to get our people back into their workplaces.
“Although we must remain vigilant, we can’t dodge this forever and must take what we have learned from the past two years to move forward.
“Personally, I am very pleased and want to see Dorset businesses back firing on all cylinders as soon as possible.”
