Boris Johnson dictates strict work from home


Boris Johnson threw the country into a third national lockdown tonight, ordering everyone to work from home when they can.

However, the criteria of who cannot stay in the office have created some confusion, with the exception that this only applies to people who “absolutely cannot work from home”.

The government's official website states that this category includes, among other things, “people who work in critical national infrastructure, construction or manufacturing and must be present in person”.

Roles like these – which include water service providers and telecommunications workers – are, according to the guidelines, "essential in keeping the country up and running and supporting sectors and employers".

Those who work in childcare or education are essential service, which means they should keep working.

People who have to work in other people's homes – such as nannies, cleaners, or traders – can do the same.

Government Policies For Working From Home

You can only leave home to work if you cannot adequately work from home.

If people cannot work from home – including, but not limited to, people working in critical national infrastructure, in construction, or in manufacturing – they should continue to travel to work. This is essential to keep the country running and to support sectors and employers.

Public sector workers engaged in essential services such as childcare or education should continue to work.

If you have to work in other people's homes, e.g. B. for nannies, cleaners or traders, you can do this. Otherwise, avoid meeting for work in a home or garden where safe COVID-19 measures may not be in place.

Employers and employees should discuss their working arrangements, and employers should take all possible steps to make it easier for their employees to work from home, including providing adequate IT and equipment to enable remote working.

The risk of transmission can be significantly reduced if the security guidelines of COVID-19 are strictly followed. People at higher risk should be given special consideration.

To make his job easier, employees are asked to provide both IT equipment and the services that enable remote work.

Those who are out of the house without a "reasonable excuse" – including those who work outside when not strictly necessary – can be fined £ 200.

That number can go up to £ 6,400 for repeat offenders.

Mr Johnson is calling on the nation to abide by the new rules starting tonight, but the CEOs reacted with anger at the short notice and the fact that the Prime Minister did not announce any new financial aid to businesses.

Industry leaders said the recent restrictions are another "body blow" to ailing companies.

In number 10, Mr Johnson said tough new coronavirus curbs are needed to tackle a new, more infectious strain of the disease that is spreading across the UK.

He said: “With most of the country already facing extreme measures, it is clear that we must do more together to bring this new variant under control while our vaccines are introduced.

& # 39; In England we therefore have to go into a national lockdown that is tough enough to contain this variant.

“That means the government is again ordering you to stay home.

“You are only allowed to leave the house for legally permissible reasons, e.g. B. to shop for essentials to work, when you absolutely cannot work from home, to do sports, to get medical help, e.g. B. to get a Covid test or to avoid domestic violence. & # 39;

The government has already announced that its vacation pay program will be extended until the end of April.

However, business leaders immediately said the new lockdown will require more support if businesses are to stay afloat.

The government's official website states that people who are allowed to work from home include "people who work in critical national infrastructure, construction or manufacturing and who require personal presence" (file picture).

Adam Marshall, UK Chamber of Commerce Director General, said: “Businesses will understand why the Prime Minister was forced to respond to the growing public health threat, but they will be amazed and disappointed that he has not announced additional support for affected companies in addition to these new restrictions.

& # 39; The lockdowns announced today in England and Scotland are a major blow to our business community, hot on the heels of lost trade over the Christmas season and uncertainty surrounding the end of the Brexit transition period.

& # 39; Tens of thousands of businesses are already in a precarious position and are now facing a period of further difficulties and difficulties.

The government's official website states that this category includes, among other things, “People who work in critical national infrastructure, construction or manufacturing who require personal attendance,” such as: B. Factory workers (pictured).

“Billions have been spent helping good companies weather this unprecedented crisis and save jobs.

"These companies must not fail now if the introduction of the vaccine at the end of this long tunnel sheds light."

Richard Burge, executive director of the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry, made a similar statement.

"The extension of the holiday program to spring was welcomed, but it will remain a cliff as we near, as will the end of the sales tax and business rate relief periods," he said.

& # 39; These need to be expanded. We also need an expansion of the grant program, which is provided through councils, based on the number of businesses within a county rather than the number of residents.

The government needs to understand that this is a London marathon. They plan the long haul, have feeding and water stations all the way and support after the finish line. The Treasury Department has to present its plan for this marathon. At the moment they are not on duty and London could fall as a result. & # 39;

What you can and can't do during national lockdown: Government guidelines in full

You have to stay home. The most important action we can all take is to stay home to protect the NHS and save lives.

You should follow these instructions immediately. The law will be updated to reflect these new rules.

Leaving home

You are not allowed to walk or be outside your home unless you have to. You can leave home to:

  • Buy for basic needs, for you or a vulnerable person
  • going to work or doing volunteer or community service when you cannot reasonably do so from home
  • If you are exercising with your household (or your support bladder) or someone else, this should be limited to once a day and you should not travel outside of your area.
  • Hit your support or childcare bubble if necessary, but only if you are legally entitled to create one
  • Seek medical attention or avoid injury, illness, or the risk of harm (including domestic violence).
  • attend an apprenticeship or childcare – for those entitled

Universities, elementary and secondary schools will only remain open to vulnerable children and children of critical workers. All other children study until the half year of February. The settings for the first few years remain open.

The university offering will remain online until mid-February for all but future courses for critical workers.

If you leave home for a valid reason, you should always remain in the village, town, or part of the town where you live. You can leave your region for any reason permitted by law; B. because of work.

If you are at extreme clinical risk, only go out for medical appointments, exercise, or when it is important to go out. You shouldn't take part in the work

Meet others

You can't leave home to socialize with someone who you don't live with or who you're not in a support bubble with (unless you are legally allowed to form one).

You can train on your own, with someone else, or with your household or support bubble.

You shouldn't meet anyone else you don't live with or with whom you've formed a support bubble unless there is a valid reason why you can.

Stay 2 meters away from people who are not in your household.

Detailed instructions on national blocking

Who this guide is for

These instructions are aimed at people who are fit and healthy. There is additional advice for people who are clinically extremely susceptible to coronavirus and for households with possible or confirmed coronavirus infection. If you are at extreme clinical risk, avoid going to work, school, college, or university and limiting the amount of time you spend outside the home. You should only go out for medical appointments, exercise, or when it is important.

Hands. Face. Room.

About 1 in 3 people with coronavirus have no symptoms and could spread it without realizing it.

Remember – 'hands. Face. Space. & # 39;

  • Hands – Wash your hands regularly for at least 20 seconds
  • Face – Wear face covering indoors where social distancing can be difficult and you will come into contact with people you would not normally meet
  • Space – If possible, stay 2 meters away from people you do not live with, or 1 meter if additional precautions are taken (such as wearing face coverings).

At all costs, follow the directions to meet others safely.

If you can leave the house

You are not allowed to leave your home or be outside of it unless you have a "reasonable excuse". This is regulated by law. The police can take action against you if you leave the house without a “reasonable apology” and impose a fine (Fixed Penalty).

You can get a fixed fine of £ 200 for the first offense, which doubles to a maximum of £ 6,400 for further offenses.

A "reasonable apology" includes:

  • Work – You may only leave home for work when it is inappropriate for you to do your work from home, including but not limited to those who work in critical national infrastructure, construction, or manufacturing and require personal presence
  • Volunteering – You can also leave home to do volunteer or community service.
  • Essential Activities – You can leave home to buy things in stores or get services. You can also leave home to do these things on behalf of a disabled or vulnerable person, or someone who is self-isolating.
  • Education and Childcare – You can only leave home for education, registered childcare, and supervised activities for children that you are eligible to attend. Access to education and activities for school-age children is limited. More information about education and childcare can be found here. People can continue existing arrangements for contact between parents and children in whom they are separated. This includes childcare bubbles.
  • Meeting with Others and Care – You can leave home to visit people in your support bubble (if you are legally entitled to form one), to informally care for children under the age of 14 under a child care bubble (e.g. to To enable parents to work and not allow social contact between adults), to look after disabled or vulnerable people, to provide emergency aid, to participate in a self-help group (with up to 15 people) or to take a care break if this care is for a vulnerable person or a person with a disability or is taking a short break in relation to a cared child.
  • Exercise – You can continue exercising alone, with someone else, or with your household or support bladder. This should be limited to once per day and you shouldn't travel outside of your area. You should keep social distance. See train and meet other people.
  • Medical Reasons – You can leave home for medical reasons, including a COVID-19 test for medical appointments and emergencies.
  • Harm and Compassionate Visits – You can leave the house to be with someone who is giving birth, to avoid injury or illness, or to avoid the risk of harm (such as domestic violence). You can also leave the house to visit someone who is dying, someone in a nursing home (if this is permitted under the guidance of the nursing home), a hospice or hospital, or to accompany them to a doctor's appointment.
  • Animal welfare reasons – You can leave your home for animal welfare reasons, e.g. B. To contact a veterinary service for advice or treatment.
  • Communal Worship and Life Events – You can leave home to attend or attend a place of worship for communal worship, funeral or event related to a death, burial site or memorial garden, or to attend a wedding ceremony. You should follow instructions on how to use places of worship safely and should not mix with anyone outside of your household or support bubble when visiting a place of worship. Weddings, funerals, and religious, belief-based, or memorial events associated with the death of an individual are all subject to attendance limits. Weddings and civil ceremonies may only take place in exceptional cases.

There are other reasonable excuses. For example, you may leave your home to comply with legal obligations or to engage in activities related to buying, selling, renting or renting a residential property, or when it is reasonable to vote in an election or referendum.

Train and meet other people

You should minimize the amount of time you spend outside your home.

It is against the law to socialize with family or friends unless they are part of your household or your support bubble. You can only leave your home to play sports and not for recreation or leisure (e.g. a picnic or a social gathering). This should be limited to once per day and you shouldn't travel outside of your area.

You can exercise outdoors in a public place:

  • of yourself
  • with the people you live with
  • with your support bubble (if you are legally entitled to create one)
  • in a child care bubble where child care is offered
  • or, if you are alone, with 1 person from another household
  • Public outdoor spaces are:
  • Parks, beaches, publicly accessible landscape, forests
  • public gardens (regardless of whether you pay to enter or not)
  • the site of a cultural heritage
  • playgrounds

Outdoor sports venues, including tennis courts, golf courses, and swimming pools, must be closed.

When around other people, stay 2 meters away, from people outside your household – that is, from the people you live with – or from your support bubble. If this is not possible, maintain a distance of 1 meter with additional precautions (such as wearing a face covering).

They have to be used in many indoor spaces, e.g. For example, wear face-covering in shops or places of worship that remain open and on public transport, unless you are exempt. That's the law. Read the instructions for face coverings.

Support and child care bubbles

You have to meet certain eligibility requirements to form a support or childcare bubble. This means that not everyone can form a bubble.

A support bubble is a support network that connects two households. You can only build a support bubble with another household of any size if you meet the eligibility requirements.

It is against the law to create a support bubble if you don't follow these rules.

You're allowed to leave home to visit (and stay with) your support bubble. However, if you are creating a support bubble, it is best if it happens with a household that lives locally. This will prevent the virus from spreading to an area where more people are infected.

If you live in a household with anyone under the age of 14, you can create a childcare bubble. This allows friends or family members from another household to offer informal childcare.

You are not allowed to socialize with your child care bubble and are allowed to avoid seeing members of your child care and support bubbles at the same time.

There are separate instructions for support bladders and childcare bladders.

Where and when you can meet in larger groups

There are still circumstances where you can meet other people outside of your household, childcare or support bubble in larger groups. However, this should not be for socializing and should only be for permissible purposes. A full list of these circumstances is included in the regulations and includes:

  • for work or for voluntary or charitable services, if this is not reasonable from home. This can include working in other people's homes, for example, nannies, cleaners, social workers who support children and families, or tradespeople, if necessary. See Instructions for Working Safely in Other People's Homes. If a work meeting doesn't need to be in a home or garden, it shouldn't be. For example, although you can meet a personal trainer, do so in an outdoor public place.
  • in a child care bubble (only for child care purposes)
  • If authorized, use these services for education, registered childcare and supervised activities for children. Access to educational and childcare facilities is restricted. More information about education and childcare can be found here.
  • for agreements in which children do not live in the same household as their parents or legal guardians
  • To enable contact between birth parents and cared for children as well as between cared for siblings
  • for potential adoptive parents to meet a child or children who can be placed with them
  • Enable or facilitate the placement or relief of a child or children in the care of another through social services
  • for birth partners
  • Provide emergency assistance and avoid injury or illness or the risk of injury (including domestic violence)
  • to see someone dying
  • to fulfill a legal obligation, such as B. participation in a court or jury service
  • for meetings in prison or immigration detention centers
  • To provide care or support for vulnerable people or to give a caregiver a break
  • for a wedding or an equivalent ceremony in exceptional cases and only for up to 6 people
  • for funerals – up to 30 people. Wakes and other related ceremonial events can continue in a group of up to 6 people.
  • visiting someone at home who is dying, visiting someone receiving treatment in a hospital, hospice, or nursing home, or taking a family member or friend to a doctor's appointment
  • for elite athletes (and their coaches if required, or parents / guardians if under 18) – or for those on an official elite sports path – to compete and train
  • to facilitate a move

Support groups that need to be delivered in person can continue with up to 15 participants who are formally organized to provide mutual help, therapy or other forms of support. However, they must take place in a room other than a private household.

Generally, if a group includes someone affected by an exception (such as someone who works or volunteers), they are not counted as part of the gathering limit. This means, for example, that a trader can go into a household without exceeding the limit when he is there for work, and the civil servant at a wedding would not count towards the limit.

If you break the rules

The police can take action against you if you meet in larger groups. This includes breaking illegal gatherings and the imposition of fines (fixed criminal charges).

You can get a fixed fine of £ 200 for the first offense, which doubles to a maximum of £ 6,400 for further offenses. If you hold or are involved in an illegal gathering of over 30 people, the police can impose a fine of £ 10,000.

Protection of people at risk from coronaviruses

If you are clinically prone, you may be at greater risk of developing serious illness from the coronavirus. There is additional advice for those who are extremely clinically susceptible to coronavirus. Those who are at extreme clinical risk should not go to work, school, college, or university and limit the amount of time they spend outside the home. You should only go out for medical appointments, exercise, or when it is important.

travel

You are not allowed to leave your home unless you have a reasonable excuse (e.g. for work or educational purposes). If you do need to travel, stay local – that is, do not travel outside of your village, town, or part of a town you live in – and try to limit the total number of trips you make to reduce. The list of reasons why you can leave your home and region includes, among others:

  • work where you cannot reasonably work from home
  • Access to education and caring responsibilities
  • Visit those in your support bubble – or your childcare bubble for childcare
  • Visiting a hospital, family doctor, and other medical appointments or visits where you have had an accident or are worried about your health
  • Buying the goods or services that you need, but should be near you wherever possible
  • Exercise outdoors. If possible, this should be done on site. However, if necessary, you can travel a short distance within your area to do so (e.g. to gain access to an open space).
  • Participation in the care and exercise of an animal or veterinary services

If you need to travel, walk, or bike, plan ahead and avoid busy times and public transit routes. This is a great way to practice social distancing while traveling.

Avoid car sharing with people outside of your household or support bubble. See the instructions for car sharing.

If you have to use public transport, you should follow the safer tour guides.

Trips abroad

You can only travel internationally or within the UK if you have a legal reason to leave for the first time. In addition, you should consider the public health advice in the country you are visiting.

If you need to travel overseas (and it is permitted by law, e.g. because it is a job), you should check the rules that apply, even if you are returning to a place where you have previously visited the destination and travel advice of the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO).

UK residents currently abroad do not need to return home immediately. However, you should check with your airline or tour operator about return shipping arrangements.

Foreigners are subject to the rules for staying at home. You should not travel abroad unless permitted. That means you are not allowed to go on vacation.

When you visit the UK, you can return home. You should check to see if there are any restrictions at your destination.

Stay away from home overnight

You cannot leave your home or where you live for a vacation or to stay overnight unless you have a reasonable excuse to do so. This means that holidays in the UK and abroad are not allowed.

This includes staying in a second home or caravan if that is not your main residence. This includes staying with someone you don't live with unless they're in your support bubble.

You can stay away from home overnight if you:

  • visit your support bubble
  • cannot return to their primary residence
  • need accommodation when moving
  • require accommodation to attend a funeral or similar memorial service
  • need accommodation for work purposes or for volunteering
  • are a child who needs housing for school or care
  • are homeless, seeking asylum, a vulnerable person seeking refuge, or when escaping harm (including domestic violence)
  • are a professional athlete or their support staff or parent if the athlete is under 18 and needs to be outside the home for training or competition

If you are already on vacation, you should return to your home as soon as possible.

Providers of guest accommodation such as hotels, B & Bs and caravan parks can remain open for reasons specified by law, e.g. B. If guests cannot return to their main residence, use this guest accommodation as their main residence and need accommodation while moving. are self-isolating as required by law or would otherwise become homeless due to the closure of the accommodation. For a full list of reasons, see the UK Closing Guidelines for Certain Businesses and Venues.

Accommodation providers are also encouraged to work with local authorities to provide shelter to vulnerable groups, including the homeless.

Go to work

You can only leave home to work if you cannot adequately work from home.

If people cannot work from home – including, but not limited to, people working in critical national infrastructure, in construction, or in manufacturing – they should continue to travel to work. This is important in keeping the country running and supporting sectors and employers.

Public sector workers engaged in essential services such as childcare or education should continue to work.

You can do so wherever you have to work in other people's homes – for example, for nannies, cleaners, or traders. Otherwise, avoid meeting for work in a home or garden where safe COVID-19 measures may not be in place.

Employers and employees should discuss their working arrangements, and employers should take all possible steps to make it easier for their employees to work from home, including providing adequate IT and equipment to enable remote working.

Das Übertragungsrisiko kann erheblich reduziert werden, wenn die Sicherheitsrichtlinien von COVID-19 genau befolgt werden. Personen mit höherem Risiko sollten besonders berücksichtigt werden.

Zur Schule, zum College und zur Universität gehen

Hochschulen, Grundschulen (ab Rezeption) und weiterführende Schulen bleiben für schutzbedürftige Kinder und Kinder kritischer Arbeitnehmer offen. Alle anderen Kinder lernen bis zum Halbjahr im Februar.

Unter diesen Umständen halten wir es nicht für möglich, dass alle Prüfungen im Sommer wie geplant durchgeführt werden. Wir werden dementsprechend mit Ofqual zusammenarbeiten, um schnell zu konsultieren und alternative Vorkehrungen zu treffen, die es den Schülern ermöglichen, faire Fortschritte zu erzielen.

Öffentliche Prüfungen und berufliche Bewertungen, die im Januar stattfinden sollen, werden wie geplant durchgeführt.

Universitäten

Diejenigen Studenten, die eine Ausbildung absolvieren und für die folgenden Kurse studieren, sollten wie geplant zum persönlichen Lernen zurückkehren und bei ihrer Ankunft zweimal getestet oder zehn Tage lang selbstisoliert werden:

  • Medizin & Zahnmedizin
  • Mit Medizin / Gesundheit verwandte Themen
  • Tierheilkunde
  • Ausbildung (Lehrererstausbildung)
  • Sozialarbeit
  • Kurse, für die eine Beurteilung durch Fach-, Rechts- und Aufsichtsbehörden (PSRB) und / oder obligatorische Aktivitäten erforderlich ist, die für Januar geplant sind und die nicht verschoben werden können (Ihre Universität wird Sie benachrichtigen, wenn dies auf Sie zutrifft).

Studenten, die diese Kurse nicht studieren, sollten wo immer möglich dort bleiben, wo sie sind, und ihr Semester online beginnen, wie von ihrer Universität bis mindestens Mitte Februar ermöglicht. Dies schließt Studenten anderer praktischer Kurse ein, die nicht in der obigen Liste aufgeführt sind.

Wir haben bereits Leitlinien für Universitäten und Studenten veröffentlicht, wie Studenten im Frühjahrssemester sicher zur Hochschulbildung zurückkehren können. In diesem Leitfaden wird dargelegt, wie wir Hochschulanbieter dabei unterstützen werden, dass Studierende, die nach der Winterpause zurückkehren müssen, dies so sicher wie möglich tun können.

Wenn Sie an einer Universität leben, sollten Sie während der Semesterzeit nicht zwischen Ihrem ständigen Zuhause und Ihrem Studentenheim hin und her wechseln.

Für diejenigen Schüler, die Anspruch auf Präsenzunterricht haben, können Sie sich bei Bedarf im Rahmen Ihrer formalen Bildung oder Ausbildung in Gruppen von mehr als Ihrem Haushalt treffen. Die Schüler sollten erwarten, die Anweisungen und Einschränkungen zu befolgen. Sie sollten sich sozial von jemandem distanzieren, mit dem Sie nicht leben, wo immer dies möglich ist.

Kinderbetreuung

Es gibt verschiedene Möglichkeiten, wie Eltern und Betreuer weiterhin auf die Kinderbetreuung zugreifen können:

  • Die Einstellungen für frühe Jahre (einschließlich Kindergärten und Tagesmütter) bleiben offen
  • Gefährdete Kinder und Kinder kritischer Arbeitnehmer können weiterhin registrierte Kinderbetreuung, Tagesmütter und andere Kinderbetreuungsaktivitäten (einschließlich Rundum-Betreuung) nutzen.
  • Eltern können mit einem anderen Haushalt eine Kinderbetreuungsblase zum Zwecke der informellen Kinderbetreuung bilden, wenn das Kind unter 14 Jahre alt ist. Dies dient hauptsächlich dazu, den Eltern die Arbeit zu ermöglichen, und darf nicht dazu verwendet werden, den sozialen Kontakt zwischen Erwachsenen zu ermöglichen
  • Einige Haushalte werden auch von einer Unterstützungsblase profitieren können
  • Kindermädchen können weiterhin Dienstleistungen erbringen, auch zu Hause

Pflegeheimbesuche

Besuche in Pflegeheimen können mit Vorkehrungen wie großen Bildschirmen, Besuchskapseln oder hinter Fenstern erfolgen. Innenbesuche mit engem Kontakt sind nicht gestattet. Im Falle eines Ausbruchs sind keine Besuche gestattet.

Sie sollten die Anleitungen zum Besuch von Pflegeheimen während COVID-19 lesen, um herauszufinden, wie Besuche durchgeführt werden sollten. Die Bewohner können bei einem Besuch im Haus keine Menschen treffen (z. B. um ihre Verwandten im Haus der Familie zu besuchen). Es gibt separate Richtlinien für diejenigen, die ein unterstütztes Leben führen.

Hochzeiten, Lebenspartnerschaften, Gottesdienste und Beerdigungen

Hochzeiten, standesamtliche Trauungen und Beerdigungen sind mit strengen Teilnahmebeschränkungen gestattet und dürfen nur an sicheren Orten von COVID-19 oder in öffentlichen Außenbereichen stattfinden, es sei denn, es liegen außergewöhnliche Umstände vor.

Beerdigungen können von maximal 30 Personen besucht werden. Verknüpfte religiöse, glaubensbasierte oder Gedenkveranstaltungen wie Steinfassungen und Aschestreuungen können auch mit bis zu 6 Teilnehmern fortgesetzt werden. Wer arbeitet, wird in diesen Grenzen nicht berücksichtigt. Die soziale Distanzierung zwischen Menschen, die nicht zusammenleben oder eine Unterstützungsblase teilen, sollte aufrechterhalten werden.

Hochzeiten und standesamtliche Trauungen dürfen nur mit bis zu 6 Personen stattfinden. Wer arbeitet, ist nicht enthalten. Diese sollten nur in Ausnahmefällen stattfinden, z. B. in einer dringenden Ehe, in der einer der Heiraten schwer krank ist und keine Genesung erwartet wird oder sich einer schwächenden Behandlung oder einer lebensverändernden Operation unterziehen muss.

Andachtsorte

Sie können Kultstätten für einen Gottesdienst besuchen. Sie dürfen sich jedoch nicht mit Personen außerhalb Ihres Haushalts oder der Unterstützungsblase unterhalten. Sie sollten jederzeit eine strikte soziale Distanzierung einhalten.
