FCA update following the recent coronavirus restrictions statements on Tuesday 22 September

We note the recent statement made by the UK Government and devolved administrations on coronavirus (Covid-19) on Tuesday 22 September.

Firms should continue to follow Government advice on working from home until notified otherwise. Where office workers can work effectively from home, they should do so over the winter. Anyone else who cannot work from home should go to their place of work.

The financial services industry has continued to operate during the coronavirus pandemic with homeworking and some workers operating in locations such as branches and call centres.

We have previously published advice on the steps financial services firms should take, for example identifying key workers where required and the responsibilities of senior managers – these statements have been updated today to reflect recent developments.
