Government updates guidance for working amid new coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdown

The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport have updated the guidance on working safely during coronavirus (COVID-19) for various sectors. The guidance states that during the period of new restrictions in England (5 November to 2 December 2020) where staff can work from home, they must do so.
