How much proof are employers generally needing when they say "if you're coming down with related symptoms please stay home"?

You self certify like you would with anything else.  After the self certificate period expires you ring 111 for a confirmation email of self isolation which most employers will accept in lieu of a doctor's note.  If you self certify for isolation your GP won't touch you - i.e. you will be told not to come to the surgery.  You'll be told to ring 111 for everything.

So oddly enough the current advice at work (a large insurance company) is to NOT work from home. Seem's the VPN infrastructure is straining under the weight of everyone choosing to stay at home and causing loads of network issues. So we've all got to come in the office unless we have good reason.

A load of us at our office have been working from home today, its not something they allow or really want to let happen from what I can tell, to test how well the architecture can handle it should they need to get people working from home. 

The sensible thing I'd assume is get essential people on home office and every one else split the week or just be on call to do something if needed by the essential core of heads.

Is the stockpiling of toilet roll based on how much wanking will increase when we're all working from home for a month?

Health minister and Conservative MP Nadine Dorries says she has tested positive for coronavirus.

Rather cleverly, she's been in and out of Parliament all last week, and in No 10 cabinet meetings, whilst carrying the virus.

Anyone know if 55-year-old Johnson has any pre-existing health conditions? Wondering how hard I need to be crossing my fingers here.

A dying pm would do wonders for level of panic. 
 

Back on current events interest rates are now back to the lowest level 0.25 percent  I wonder if vat will be cut later.

Jersey's government guidelines were updated yesterday, after the first case confirmed locally. Our boss, in their infinite wisdom, decided to follow up on this with a mandatory all-staff meeting. Because no better way of preventing the spread of an infectious disease than cramming everyone in a single room.

I'm sorry, I'm trying my best to picture a moving montage as Elton sings "Goodbye, England's rose," but I can't keep a straight face.

Surely the lyrics " I'm not the man they think I am at home" is more apt for a Johnson send off.

Strangely you'd think the Royal Mail would be all over this with information about avoiding it considering we come in to contact with all sorts all day long but absolutely nothing has been sent down.

Imagine how much second hand slobber we come in to contact with on a daily basis, and that's just the lonely housewives. Me brass hand etc.

With every company and their cat either activating or adding Teams to their Office 365 tenancy even MS are struggling with the huge surge in demand.  Even the cloud has finite resources eventually.
