Throughout the pandemic, Cabinet Office staff have worked from home and the workplace in line with the appropriate government guidance in place at the time - particularly the Working Safely during Coronavirus (COVID-19) guidance - recognising the different approaches taken by the devolved administrations. Additional assorted guidance has been issued to Cabinet Office staff to support them in working safely from home and in the workplace, as deemed necessary.

Cabinet Office has followed the latest government guidance in relation to managing the risk of COVID-19 in the workplace. It will continue to follow this advice - as we actively support staff back to the workplace following the most recent update in guidance.
