PARIS (Reuters) – French Labour Minister Elisabeth Borne said on Tuesday it was paramount that companies boost remote working to avoid having to resort to a new lockdown to fight the spread of COVID-19.
“In recent days (COVID) data are not good. We all want to avoid a new lockdown and working from home is a good answer,” Borne told Europe 1 radio.
Borne said she would meet on Friday with representatives from sectors such as banking, insurance or engineering that have seen their use of remote working decline in recent months.
