Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic and Staff Welfare HR Notice

The management would like to wish you the greatest of health and well being throughout this difficult time.

How is the coronavirus spread and how can I protect myself?

The most important advice to follow is to stay at home and keep washing your hands. Like cold and flu bugs, the new virus is spread via droplets when a person coughs or sneezes. The droplets travel for up to three metres, landing on surfaces which are then touched by others and spread further.

People catch the virus when their infected hands touch the mouth, nose or eyes. It follows that the single most important thing you can do to protect yourself is to keep your hands clean by washing them frequently with soap and water or a hand sanitising gel. 

Also try to avoid touching your mouth, nose or eyes with unwashed hands – something we all do unconsciously on average about 15 times an hour.

Other tips include:

  • ·         Carry a hand sanitiser with you at all time to make frequent cleaning of your hands easy
  • ·         Always wash your hands before you eat or touch your face
  • ·         Be especially careful about touching things and then touching your face 
  • ·         Sneeze or cough into the crook of your elbow to prevent your hands being contaminated
  • ·         Carry disposable tissues with you, cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze and dispose of the tissue carefully (catch it, bin it, kill it)
  • ·         If you do have to go to work remember social distancing rules and keep away from people
  • ·         Wash your hands when you get in after you have been out
  • ·         Regularly clean not only your hands but also commonly used surfaces and devices you touch or handle

Further considerations:

Please do not confuse the symptoms of Coronavirus(COVID-19) with that similar to a common cold/flu.

Coronavirus (Covid-19) symptoms differ in that there may be temperature, and persistent dry coughing.

If you are experiencing any symptoms, we advise you to isolate yourself from all other persons, and if possible, to utilize a separate bathroom for a period of 14 days. Please rest and drink plenty of fluids and manage headaches/body pain with Paracetamol/Panadol.

When should I seek medical help?

If you have difficulty breathing - for example, you are breathing hard and fast, then you should seek medical help.

IF your symptoms Worsen Do Not attempt to go to a medical centre or hospital

Call 999 and ask for a Government Ambulance.
