    Yes. We are already doing at least one day working from home.
    I suppose it all depends on type of work you need to do.
    Our VR team can not really work remotely. They need their machines next to them.
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    Re: QOTW: Are you able to work from home?

    Tools - Yeah, just about.
    Open - They kinda have to be, since if we all die hospitals get no water and then you all die.

    We're all on standby, waiting to hear if our office bases are to be closed and crews put on alert for emergency field works, and the like.

    Re: QOTW: Are you able to work from home?

    I am and since noon yesterday I do. I will continue to do so for the next two weeks unless I am told otherwise. TBH luckily I'm in a situation where there's next to nothing that I do at work that I cannot do at home.

    Yes, very rarely go into my office or a client site. Full office at home and fibre broadband - Teams is my No.1 tool

    Yes, but only if they give me a computer. So at present, that's a massive no... quite ridiculous

    Yes, but only because I have a VPN enabled work laptop. Involved in a project to rapidly enable Citrix gateway so any machine can do it in.the hope of moving non clinical staff offsite.
