Not quite sure if it’s business as usual for me, haven’t heard anything from my employer yet. Thought it was a little vague?

Are you classed as a Key Worker, that might make things clearer?

To be honest I haven’t checked, but even my employers seem a little confused at the minute.

Edit: The gaffer has just put a message out, we’re still in as normal.

This is a list of Key Workers from the .Gov website regarding schools if this helps

Health and social care

This includes but is not limited to doctors, nurses, midwives, paramedics, social workers, care workers, and other frontline health and social care staff including volunteers; the support and specialist staff required to maintain the UK’s health and social care sector; those working as part of the health and social care supply chain, including producers and distributers of medicines and medical and personal protective equipment.

Education and childcare

This includes childcare, support and teaching staff, social workers and those specialist education professionals who must remain active during the COVID-19 response to deliver this approach.

Key public services

This includes those essential to the running of the justice system, religious staff, charities and workers delivering key frontline services, those responsible for the management of the deceased, and journalists and broadcasters who are providing public service broadcasting.

Local and national government

This only includes those administrative occupations essential to the effective delivery of the COVID-19 response, or delivering essential public services, such as the payment of benefits, including in government agencies and arms length bodies.

Food and other necessary goods

This includes those involved in food production, processing, distribution, sale and delivery, as well as those essential to the provision of other key goods (for example hygienic and veterinary medicines).

Public safety and national security

This includes police and support staff, Ministry of Defence civilians, contractor and armed forces personnel (those critical to the delivery of key defence and national security outputs and essential to the response to the COVID-19 pandemic), fire and rescue service employees (including support staff), National Crime Agency staff, those maintaining border security, prison and probation staff and other national security roles, including those overseas.


This includes those who will keep the air, water, road and rail passenger and freight transport modes operating during the COVID-19 response, including those working on transport systems through which supply chains pass.

Utilities, communication and financial services

This includes staff needed for essential financial services provision (including but not limited to workers in banks, building societies and financial market infrastructure), the oil, gas, electricity and water sectors (including sewerage), information technology and data infrastructure sector and primary industry supplies to continue during the COVID-19 response, as well as key staff working in the civil nuclear, chemicals, telecommunications (including but not limited to network operations, field engineering, call centre staff, IT and data infrastructure, 999 and 111 critical services), postal services and delivery, payments providers and waste disposal sectors.

If workers think they fall within the critical categories above, they should confirm with their employer that, based on their business continuity arrangements, their specific role is necessary for the continuation of this essential public service.

If your school is closed, then please contact your local authority, who will seek to redirect you to a local school in your area that your child, or children, can attend.

We are grateful for the work of teachers and workers in educational settings for continuing to provide for the children of the other critical workers of our country. It is an essential part of our national effort to combat this disease.

Is anyone falling out with family members who aren’t conducting themselves properly in all this?  Brexit caused family arguments so assuming this is as well.  Fallen out with my brother who is being quite selfish. 

Close. Considering the ill father in law, partner decided to go for a drink Friday with a friend before picking up the takeaway. Completely unnecessary and irresponsible

Just told me I better be careful who I come into contact with at my Nans funeral next week and shouldn't stay too long. Fair point on it's own, but didnt like the double standards being pointed out

*i did get sent home to work today though, so this is day 1 of who knows how many at home together... 🤣

Can I go to work tomorrow? I`ll be driving and I won`t be coming into contact with anyone, just doing surveys on empty houses.

It`s not clear at all.

My lad's an apprentice at Airbus and has been told he's expected in tomorrow. Hardly 'essential' but there you go. :dunno:

The difference is I guess that if he`s stopped on his way there he can say his boss told him he had to come in but I`m self employed so wouldn`t have that as an excuse.

What about vets? What happens if pets get sick?

I work at a school, we've been told by a parent that she's been told she is a "key worker". Apparently it was added in  revised list.

Child was in today so must be right....

Met Police Federation have come out asking what's going on because nobody's briefed them on how to enforce it.


You couldn’t make it up.

One of many issues, that we’ve all got to untangle, sick, dependent parents et al but anyone know of recommendations for dealing with shared access children? 

Would love to say that my partner’s daughter could sort it amicably with her ex but I don’t think that’s going to happen! Assume they’ve got to go to one side or the other for a period. Makes sense. ...but common sense goes out the window between warring factions ..even as I say if this is potentially a matter of life and death! 

Partner’s daughter was going to complete on her new house purchase next week ...don’t think it’s going to happen! Shite timing.

Just thinking ahead, if I die (and I hope I don't soon, but I do accept that mortality is running at 100%) and funeral numbers are limited in terms of the number of mourners you can have.

I think I might have the priest do to the admin and stuff, my folks if they are allowed out the house, the Doris and then there is one spot left.

I am blessed with a fantastic group of friends and family. But, all things considered, I might ask that my personal account manager attends in their place. I feel they really get me.

And the buffet at the wake can be a vouchered affair.

Trades are supposed to stop, unless it’s essential work, simple as.

During that time the government will cover 80% of wages for employers to help prevent redundancies.

Nope, trades including builders can carry on because they cannot work from home. They just have to observe "The 2m rule" .
