Working from Home or at Workplace
For the foreseeable future, workers should continue to work from home
rather than their normal physical workplace, wherever possible.
All reasonable steps should be taken by employers to help people work from
home. Those who are able to work from home will allow those who have to
attend workplaces in person to do so while minimising the risk of
overcrowding on public transport and in public places.
All workers who cannot work from home should travel to work if their
workplace is open.
The guidance states that, if a worker cannot work from home, they should
travel to their workplace (if it is open) in sectors like food production,
construction, manufacturing, logistics, distribution and scientific
research in laboratories. Employers should plan for the minimum number of
people needed to be on site to operate safely and effectively.
Hospitality businesses must remain closed, although non-essential retail
businesses can open from June 15.
