And still no clear direction to ACT based federal departments to ask & let employees work from home if they can. ACT Health keeps saying talk to your GP or employer. Fed Dpts say are following the current ACT Health advice (no official clear advice for working from home exists). That is what taking personal responsibility means (= you are on your own).
