BUT only if your workplace is Covid secure, that’s the guidance for those of us who have been shielding, so please what exactly is a Covid secure workplace?
I looked it up on the hse website, absolutely work from home if at all possible, if not no face to face with people not from your household, so, what happens to those of us who’s job involves being face to face with many people not from their household? We have to either go to the GP with ‘anxiety’ and get signed off sick or we quit and get nothing, I’m very, very lucky in so far as I don’t have to go back to work if I don’t want to, but there will be plenty of shielded people out there who will be faced with a similar dilemma, the bit I really don’t understand is what was the point in asking us to shield in the first place if it’s all fine and dandy now?
Exactly can all my workplaces make there homes covid secure. The best security is for me to not be going there in the first place.
I havent officially been shielding as my mum didnt get a letter or anything. But if i dont go to work i wont have any income, and i dont qualify for anything other than the self employed payment. Its what we do in September as theyve already said no more help. If numbers go up come autumn as predicted and we hit lockdown even locally im not sure what i will do. It could be a very long winter.
