  • Of those adults who said they were in employment, almost 8 in 10 (79%) said they had worked this week, either by working at home or travelling to work, an increase from 7 in 10 (70%) last week. 
  • A greater proportion of those who had worked in the past seven days did so from home, with 49% saying they had either exclusively worked from home or had worked from home alongside travelling to work; an increase from 41% last week. 
  • 4 in 10 adults (40%) reported that they had used face coverings outside of their home in the past week, an increase on last week (30%).
