Businesses across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough are being encouraged to make sure as many of their staff as possible are working from home.

The government advice remains the same that people should be working from home where possible, to reduce the spread of coronavirus.

As a result, businesses are being asked to look at their workforce and consider whether everyone they have on site is absolutely necessary and whether more people could be working from home.

People across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough who have been working from home throughout the pandemic have shared their stories on how they have found the experience. You can view the video blogs on the Cambridgeshire County Council YouTube channel.

A council spokesman said: "We'd love to hear from more people who can talk about how they have found working from home and their tips for making it as productive and social as working in the office. Send your clips to communications@cambridgeshire.gov.uk or communications@peterborough.gov.uk."

Businesses which are encouraging their staff to work from home are also being asked to share their experiences with the council by creating their own video blog.

Dr Liz Robin, director of public health for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, said: “We recognise how much hard work local businesses have put in to make workplaces Covid-safe. But Coronavirus passes easily from one person to another, and this can happen travelling to and from work or during breaks as well as in the workplace itself. We are urging employers to allow their staff to work from home where they can effectively do so. This will reduce their interaction with others, protect themselves and avoid a potential outbreak in the workplace. We’re encouraging local employees to share their home-working experiences with us so we can share these with the public and encourage others to do the same”.
