All Government departments, agencies and critical industries are actively planning and preparing for covid-19. Government workforce planning is based on a Reasonable Worst Case Scenario (RWCS), reflecting current scientific advice, to ensure the Civil Service is in the best place to respond and deliver public services.

As part of this, departments are ensuring they have appropriate arrangements in place to mitigate risks, and deliver services for the British public.
