Require all vulnerable and at risk people to stop going to work

Petition Details

I want the government to officially declare all vulnerable and at risk people are now being required to stay at home and not go to work at all, so they can self-isolate. They should be paid SSP for the entirety of this pandemic or an average of their wage so they can meet their bills.

Additional Information

Many vulnerable people are terrified about the virus but many are being required to go to work because employers are not legally obliged to allow them to stay at home and isolate. These vulnerable people are at increased risk of severe illness from coronavirus and must be protected.

It is not fair that vulnerable people are being required to turn up to work.
