The Head Office team is small and the office space in Brigg is self-contained and not shared with any other organisations. Wider contact with others during working hours is therefore extremely low. Additional precautions will be taken to ensure staff follow the two-metre minimum spatial recommendation set out by Public Health England to minimise the spread of infection.
Any Head Office staff member who feels unwell or suspects they may have the virus should stay at home, seek advice from NHS111 and follow the self-isolation guidance issued by the NHS: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid19/self-isolation-advice/
This coronavirus policy applies to all of our employees who physically work in our office, workshop and members of staff who drive for Keyo. We strongly recommend to our contract working personnel to read through this action plan as well, to ensure we collectively and uniformly respond to this challenge.
Government guidance suggests that it is good practice for employers to:
have visible signs in the workplace reminding employees not to attend work if they have a fever or cough, and to avoid touching their eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
The following is an outline of the actions employees should take to protect themselves and their co-workers from a potential coronavirus infection.
For the health and safety of all members of staff, it is essential that you do not report to work if you suspect you have COVID-19.

In summary, the advice is that if an employee has travelled from any Category 1 specified country/area in the past 14 days then they should contact NHS 111 for further advice. If they are currently well then they should self-isolate for 14 days and follow advice. If they are unwell then they should call NHS 111 immediately in order for them to be assessed by an appropriate specialist. If they require emergency medical attention, then call 999.
If an employee has travelled from any Category 2 specified country/area in the last 14 days and is currently well they should only self-isolate if they develop symptoms. They can continue to attend work and they do not need to avoid contact with other people. If they become unwell and display symptoms of the virus then they should stay indoors and avoid contact with other people and they should call NHS 111 immediately for them to be assessed by an appropriate specialist, as quickly as possible. In such cases, employees should stay at home and should not attend work. They should not go directly to their GP or other healthcare environment. If they require emergency medical attention, call 999 and tell the call handler that they have recently travelled to a COVID-19 risk area.
