Government has advised that people should be working from home where it is possible to do so.

Government is clear that we must support people in work to do the right thing during a Covid-19 outbreak. Businesses and employees can get advice on individual employment issues by visiting the Acas website and the latest advice on homeworking is published there. Businesses can also ring the BEIS Business Support Line for further advice on support for business.
