If immediate planned events could have an impact then please consider an immediate postponement of the event. Communication - Public health information- the signs to look for, what to do if there is a suspected case etc. People hygiene – what measures need to be undertaken / general communication with regards to the spread of the virus and the impact this may have / Microsoft teams – ensuring people are aware of how to use this HQ Hygiene – We recommend that sanitisers are made available along with antibacterial sprays to use on communal areas daily.
