Bell Ingram would like to assure our clients that we are taking precautions to ensure we can operate as normally as possible given the concern around the spread and impact of Coronavirus COVID-19.
We have taken steps internally to safeguard our team in line with the latest guidance from both the UK and Scottish Governments.
Each team member has been provided with guidance, access to support and hygiene products as well as links to government advice including the avoidance of hand shaking and non-essential travel.
Our workforce is able to work remotely and staff have been instructed to travel with necessary equipment at all times.
We can also confirm that any employee who self isolates will be supported throughout that period.
We will keep you posted with any significant changes or updates.
If you have any concerns please get in touch with us at email@example.com
In the meantime it’s worth remembering that the best course of action is to listen to the experts and follow their advice. Here’s a reminder of the important points:
The following symptoms may develop in the 14 days after exposure to someone who has COVID-19 infection:
high temperature or fever.
shortness of breath.
Generally, these infections can cause more severe symptoms in people with weakened immune systems, older people, and those with long-term conditions like diabetes, cancer and chronic lung disease.
How to avoid catching COVID-19:
You can reduce your risk of getting and spreading respiratory infections by:
avoiding direct hand contact with your eyes, nose and mouth.
maintaining good hand hygiene - washing hands with soap and water or alcohol hand sanitiser before eating and drinking, and after coughing, sneezing and going to the toilet.
avoiding direct contact with people that have a respiratory illness and avoiding using their personal items such as their mobile phone.
covering your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing with disposable tissues and disposing of them in the nearest waste bin after use.
