Living with COVID
COVID-19 restrictions have ended but COVID-19 has not
We all have a personal responsibility to keep the workplace safe.
It is important to be mindful; living with and managing the virus will mean adopting behaviors to manage the risk.
The current guidelines recommend:
- Continuing to get vaccinated and boosted.
- Ensuring workplaces are well ventilated (you can purchase a CO2 monitor for this). It is proven that being in a room with fresh air can reduce the risk of airborne transmission of COVID-19 by over 70%. There are also potential wider benefits of good ventilation for health, concentration and lower absence rates.
- Treating COVID-19 as you would the flu or norovirus; if you are unwell, stay at home.
- Washing your hands and sanitising, and following advice to 'Catch it, Bin it, Kill it'.
Whilst these are the current guidelines, and may be subject to change, we highly recommend that businesses develop their own tailored communication outlining suggestions and expectations relating to COVID-19.
