General Advice re Coronavirus Covid19

As we are all aware, the Government current advice for everyone is:

Stay at home 
Only go outside for food, health reasons or essential work 
Stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people 
Wash your hands as soon as you get home

Businesses and workplaces should encourage their employees to work at home, wherever possible

However many in our industry supply and service important weighing equipment, and most of this work cannot be done from home.

Weighing equipment in food factories, bakeries, pharmaceutical companies, hospitals, food shops and many other places has to be supplied, repaired and serviced, otherwise it will soon be impossible to provide what the country needs.

We are therefore advising members to look carefully at the various orders, contracts and enquiries that they have, and designate them as either essential or not.

It will then be clear as to which employees and what work needs to be continued during this present situation.
