Government advice is that people should work from home if possible, and to minimise social contact. This is especially pertinent in the case of teachers with underlying health conditions or disabilities, or who may otherwise be deemed to be vulnerable.
There are significant numbers of teachers who are pregnant, who are clinically extremely vulnerable, who have underlying conditions, or who are from higher risk groups such as BAME teachers who are already extremely concerned and anxious about their safety at work.
Their concerns have been heightened as a result of the increased incidence of coronavirus transmission, together with the lack of social distancing within schools and the absence of PPE. These risks continue to present serious dangers for #NASUWT members.
