Construction and factory workers will be expected to carry on as normal during the new national lockdown say the Government, despite the ‘stay at home’ order announced last night by the Prime Minister.
Factory and construction work will continue despite order to ‘stay at home’: It will remain the same as previous lockdowns with regulations allowing builders to continue working. Critical workers and volunteers who man food banks and homeless services will also be allowed to continue travel.
In the latest Government guidance it states “You can only leave home for work purposes where it is unreasonable for you to do your job from home, including but not limited to people who work within critical national infrastructure, construction or manufacturing that require in-person attendance”
In a statement from Downing Street announcing the latest restrictions Johnson said “With most of the country already under extreme measures, it is clear that we need to do more, together, to bring this new variant under control while our vaccines are rolled out. In England, we must therefore go into a national lockdown which is tough enough to contain this variant.
That means the government is once again instructing you to stay at home. You may only leave home for limited reasons permitted in law, such as to shop for essentials, to work if you absolutely cannot work from home, to exercise, to seek medical assistance such as getting a Covid test, or to escape domestic abuse.”
