At CentriVault we have been keeping a close eye on Government advice and we’d like to give you an update on what our position is in terms of how to deal with the potential impact of the virus coronavirus (COVID-19) as security includes people.
For anyone who has recently been travelling internationally, please follow current advice from the Department of Health and Social Care and Public Health England:
Anyone who has travelled to the UK from mainland China, Thailand, Japan, Republic of Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia or Macau in the last 14 days and is experiencing cough or fever or shortness of breath, should stay indoors and call NHS 111, even if symptoms are mild.
Anyone who has travelled to the UK since 19 February from Iran, specific lockdown areas in Northern Italy (as designated by the Government of Italy), special care zones in South Korea as designated by the Government of the Republic of South Korea or the Hubei province (returned in the past 14 days) should call NHS 111, stay indoors and avoid contact with other people even if you do not have symptoms.
Anyone who has travelled to the UK since 19 February from Northern Italy (excluding specific lockdown areas in Northern Italy which fall into the above category), Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos or Myanmar and is experiencing cough or fever or shortness of breath, should stay indoors at home, avoid contact with other people and call NHS 111, even if symptoms are mild.
In terms of protecting yourself in general, you will have no doubt seen on the news and on public posters that the advice is to follow sensible hygiene precautions such as:
Wash your hands often (particularly after taking public transport) - with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
If you do sneeze, please ‘Catch it, Bin it, Kill it’.
Anyone who feels unwell should stay at home.
