Government defines ‘Key Workers’ in response to COVID-19

In its guidance for schools, colleges and local authorities on maintaining educational provision, the Government has defined what it currently means by key workers. The groups include:

  • Health and social care
  • Education and childcare
  • Key public services
  • Local and national government
  • Food and other necessary goods
  • Public safety and national security
  • Transport
  • Utilities, communication and financial services

If workers think they fall within the critical categories above they should confirm with their employer that, based on their business continuity arrangements, their specific role is necessary for the continuation of this essential public service.

Refer to the Government’s web site here for fuller information.
