Define Locations if all staff are remote

I am unsure how to define/explain a location if all staff are working from home in the Scope.

Would you simply state locations as 'Various remote locations' or something different?

In terms of scope definition, you can state as location (company's headquarters) the home address of the founder / CEO of the company or the address of the office where the people accountable for the company can be found. You can define this address as the company's scope.

Regarding the remote workers, normally you do not control the environment where they are, so these are kept out of the scope, and you treat remote access as a risk in your assessment.
