The guidance to Government departments is the same as other workplaces. Ministers and their officials should continue to work from home where that is possible. Where Ministers are required to attend Parliament, they should do so in line with the latest Government guidance. Ministers should discuss their requirements with departments, so that support can be offered safely.
