The government is expected to ask people to work from home if they can, in a measure that it hopes will slow the spread of Coronavirus.

Michael Gove spoke to Sky News this morning and announced that there will be a “shift in emphasis” in asking people to work from home if they can.

He also confirmed that pubs, bars and restaurants will be forced to close at 10pm and that they will be only allowed to offer a table service.

Mr Gove also said that the government is not cancelling Christmas, and is taking measures now to ensure families can celebrate together in December.
