My employer has now confirmed that it will not be expecting staff to go back to office based work until February/March next year - if they want to.

They will be opening head office and the regional back office functions in the next couple of weeks, but with significantly reduced capacity, which will need to be booked in advance.

They've also agreed to refund my purchase of a 'sit/stand' desk... :D

My employer (local council) does not intend to change the current arrangements - work from home unless it is genuinely not possible- until there's a sign of some resolution to the pandemic. We are able to send Social Workers out on visits if we've tried all other options to complete the required task, and complete a risk assessment. It's very difficult to carry out a capacity assessment on someone with suspected dementia through an ipad, when they can't manage a telephone call.

I don't think that I will ever go back to working in an office full time.

I can remember a time when that would probably have been a good thing.
