Going to work
To help contain the virus, the government guidelines mean everyone who can work effectively from home must do so during this time of greater restrictions.
Where people cannot do so (for instance people who work in critical national infrastructure, construction or manufacturing) they should continue to travel to work/attend their workplace.
