Advice for vulnerable people

England is now in step 3 of the government’s roadmap. This means:

  • You should continue to work from home if you can.
  • You must wear a face covering in many indoor settings, such as shops and places of worship, and on public transport, unless you are exempt or have a reasonable excuse.
  • You can meet indoors with up to six people from any number of households, or any number of people from no more than two households.

The government has advised that some groups of workers are at greater risk from Covid-19 than others. People who fall into these categories should take particular care and employers should make reasonable adjustments to protect them. Generally workers in these categories should be allowed to work from home if they can, or have their role adapted so they can work safely.
