This week new lockdown rules were announced to come into effect from Thursday 5th November and will last for the next four weeks for London and across England as a whole.
From this date the government’s advice is that all workers in England who can work effectively at home must do so.
However, it appears that schools and colleges will still remain open this time but non-essential shops and services will close.
The branch has received a large number of queries about COVID19 since March 2020 including issues relating to shielding, lack of PPE and social distancing issues in schools and other work places.
