The temporary and non-contractual COVID-19 guidance developed by the Department of Health and Social Care in March 2020 has now been archived. The guidance included clarifying advice on sickness and self-isolation arising through COVID-19 and was ultimately designed to help employers ensure that staff did not attend their workplace at a time when little was known about the new virus, if they suspected they may be infectious. 
The government has now published the Living with COVID-19 plan, setting out a new phase of managing COVID-19 in England. As such, from 7 July 2022, this guidance has been archived.
