“The National Security Committee Advocates Work from Home in Red and Orange Alert Counties”

In response to the impending challenges posed by the red and orange alerts in certain counties, the National Security Committee has recommended that employees in these areas opt for the work-from-home alternative. Recognising potential disruptions in travel networks, government offices and employers have appealed for leniency towards individuals unable to attend work.
