Funeral Sector Reasonable Excuse Provision Process

29th July 2021 | COVID-19 Updates

We have received a letter from the Cabinet Office regarding those with vaccines no longer needing to quarantine if contacted by NHS Track and Trace from 16th August.

Before this date, in order to protect the delivery of essential services, arrangements are now in place to enable employers in the funeral sector, where there is an immediate threat of serious disruption to a critical public service, to apply for named critical workers to be considered to have a reasonable excuse to leave self-isolation to attend work.

This will only apply to workers who are fully vaccinated (defined as someone who is 14 days post-second dose) and is solely for the purpose of going to work.
