Omicron - PCS position

Owing to the rapid spread of the Omicron variant of Covid, the UK and devolved nation governments have issued varying ‘work from home’ messages.    

The PCS position is that all staff should work from home wherever possible.

Where this is absolutely not possible, H&S arrangements should be urgently reviewed with a view that interactions with the public must be minimised as much as possible, if not stopped.  

Where such contact cannot be halted then mitigations must be put in place, such as mask wearing and social distancing.

PCS is monitoring the situation. Please contact your PCS rep in the first instance if you have any health and safety concerns.

Further information and guidance will be issued later this week.
