The government have scrapped plans to tell people to go back to the office and the workplace and those who can work from home, will be encouraged to do so.
Cabinet Minister Michael Gove told Sky News on Tuesday morning of the governments U-turn from “back to work” to now “work from home.”
Comedian Matt Lucas scripted a parody of Boris Johnson’s announcement he made in May.
Lucas said on a Twitter video that went viral, anyone who cannot work from home “should be actively encouraged to go to work.”
He said, “And we want it to be safe for you to get to work. So, you should avoid public transport if at all possible, because we must and will maintain social distancing, and capacity will therefore be limited.
“So, work from home if you can, but you should go to work if you can’t work from home.”
Although the government's advice has U-turned and flip flopped, Matt Lucas' advice from way back in May is still correct. https://t.co/OHH0orJp98
