Guidance for employees on coronavirus

MARCH 2020

Coronavirus (COVID-19) causes acute respiratory infection and symptoms usually start with a fever, followed by a dry cough. Some people who get the virus will only experience mild or no symptoms.

The best defence and most effective action you can take to protect yourself and others from infection is to follow good hygiene practices, which will help slow the spread of the virus. When you cough or sneeze it’s important to cover your mouth – do not use your hand – use the crook of your elbow or a clean tissue. Bin the tissue after use and wash your hands with warm water and soap.

If you encounter anyone who appears to be ill and/or coughing – then maintain a distance between yourself and the individual of two meters. If you have had close contact, then maintain good personal hygiene and wipe surfaces.

ESG Security has a well-developed pandemic strategy as part of our overall Business Continuity Plan – and should employees receive enquiries about this from customers – please ask them to get in contact with us directly.
