Updated on

Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Deutsche Bank AG have informed staff that only essential employees can work from their U.K. offices after Boris Johnson announced a new nationwide lockdown to arrest a second wave of the coronavirus.

“We will substantially reduce the numbers of colleagues working from the office,” said Tiina Lee, Deutsche Bank’s U.K. chief executive officer, in a memo Sunday. “We must ensure only those that cannot carry out their role from home are in the office.”
