Today, the Deputy Commander Operations has recorded a video message thanking the Royal Air Force for their hard work in these difficult times, reiterating government guidance to ensure everyones safety and highlighting the importance of protecting the NHS.
"We must, however, operate safely, and in a disciplined manner. Unless your role is deemed to be essential to our key outputs, or for the COVID Support Force, and requires you to travel to your place of work, you should stay and work from home, protect the NHS and save lives. It really is as simple as that. And, where you must work in proximity to others, you must adhere to the clear Government instructions on social distancing."
