Corona Virus – COVID-19

There is quite rightly a national and indeed global concern relating to the potential impact of Corona Virus.  The situation is fast changing but I thought it might be useful to make the governmental advice as of 27th February.

Inevitably there has been a great deal of misinformation. The most frequent question I have received has been around self-isolation and whether an individual should go to work.

The current advice is that self-isolation is recommended if an individual has recently visited specific areas or had direct contact with a confirmed person infected with the virus.  At this stage the advice is that contact with someone, who has been recommended to take the precautionary measure of self-isolation, does not necessitate any further changes to behaviour or work.

In addition, specific queries can be dealt with by ringing 111.

Giving the highest priority to standards involving hygiene and infection control can only assist in attempting to reduce the spread of this virus.
