Absence related to COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses
If you are showing symptoms of COVID-19 or have tested positive you should follow NHS guidance. Please contact your manager to let them know and to discuss arrangements.
Symptoms of COVID-19, flu and common respiratory infections can be found on the NHS webpages.
If you feel well enough to work from home and this is agreed with your line manager, then you can work and this will not be classed as sickness absence. If you do begin to feel unwell and need to stop working from home, please alert your manager and follow the usual sickness reporting process.
If you are unwell, or your role does not allow you to work from home, then please follow the usual sickness reporting process to record your absence.
