With most schools in England and Wales reopening, people will again be encouraged to go back to their workplaces as part of a government campaign starting next week.
Employers who have had staff working from home for months will be asked to reassure them that it is safe to return by highlighting measures being taken to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
The move comes after the head of employers' organisation the CBI warned this week that city centres could become "ghost towns" if the prime minister did not do more to encourage workers back to the office.
Meanwhile, the BBC reports that good ventilation could be the key to avoiding coronavirus as autumn approaches and people spend more time indoors.
