(Reuters) - Lloyd's of London on Tuesday asked its employees in the UK to work from home following guidance from the government.

"Lloyd's Underwriting Room is certified as a Covid-secure environment and will remain open for market participants", the company's spokesperson said in a statement.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson told people to work from home where possible and ordered bars and restaurants to close early to tackle a fast-spreading second wave of COVID-19.
