You should all now have been contacted by your employer to advise that if you fall into one of the at risk groups that you are to socially distance yourself and that you time off will be paid.
This was as a result of the pressure that we have been putting on employers since this all started, we are glad that this has now been resolved and that it takes off some pressure in this uncertain time.
While this has been resolved, we do know that there is still an issue with childcare, especially for those with children who have one of the underlying conditions. We are working tirelessly to get this resolved and will update you again later.
I know that we have been sending out a high volume of communications locally and this will continue throughout this.
