In order to deal with the rapidly changing situation in the UK and across the world, we are reinforcing and keeping measures to ensure that we are able to continue to provide our high-quality services, whilst also protecting our customers, staff, other stakeholders and suppliers.
As well as reinforcing good hygiene practices throughout the company, we are taking the following measures:
- Our business remains open but we do have a larger number of staff working from home now in line with the government advice on social distancing and working from home where possible.
- We are running health check for all our field-based staff regularly. Any staff with the flu-like symptoms will be asked to self-isolate following the government advice.
And as we stated before,
- There will be no business-related travel to hot-spot areas, and any staff returning from holidays there will be assessed before returning to work.
- We are actively working with suppliers based in hot-spot areas to ensure continuity of supply, which has so far proved effective. We are also assured by the authorities that there is no health risk from imported goods from hot spot areas due to the nature of transmission of the virus.
We are closely monitoring updates regarding the virus and will keep in line with any change in government advice.
