Please note: We intend to change the format of the COVID-19 sickness absence related data in the May 2021 publication, which is due to be published on 30 September 2021. The COVID-19 sickness absence tables and Power BI dashboard will be replaced by a CSV file. This will include a time series of data by staff group and organisation from March 2020 to the most recent month to allow users to perform their own analysis.

Please let us know if this causes any issues.
