All MPs could vote remotely through an online voting tool. Votes cast remotely are shown as normal on the TheyWorkForYou voting record.
The option of online voting was removed, and a number of MPs may have been unable to vote because they were not physically able to attend.
The requirements on proxy voting were relaxed, allowing MPs to designate another MP to cast a vote on their behalf.
If an MP votes by proxy, it is effectively exactly the same as if they cast the vote in person and it shows up on their TheyWorkForYou voting record.
MPs are not required to designate a proxy, and may instead pair with an opposing MP to miss a vote. Parliament does not record when two MPs have come to a pairing arrangement, so on TheyWorkForYou, they will both appear to have been absent for the vote.
We will update this information if the situation changes. See more detail on votes during the COVID-19 period here.

How far have we come?...
My Lords, is there more that we could be doing here with groups such as the International Arab Women's Federation and its president, Haifa Fahoum Al Kaylani, because they may well have effective links in Iraq?
My Lords, it is with gratitude and respect that I rise to speak in your Lordships' House for the first time. My gratitude is for the warmth of welcome, since taking my place in the House, from noble Lords across all Benches and from all staff—most particularly, from the Convenor of the Cross Benches, my noble friend Lord Williamson, and his staff. My respect is for being able to experience...
