People unable to work from home have been given the green light to return to their jobs as part of the Government's gradual plan to get the economy back on track after the Covid-19 lockdown. 

Employers that do ask workers to come in have been told to put in place a number of measures to protect them from contracting coronavirus, such as keeping offices well ventilated and staggering shifts. 

While many people had been sent home indefinitely as part of the Government's lockdown, on Sunday night Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that those unable to work from home – such as those in construction or manufacturing – should return to work.

Jeremy Coy appears in the Telegraph answering questions and reflecting on the Prime Minister's comments about returning to work.
