OptiBiotix Health Plc. Covid 19 (‘Corona Virus’) Statement 

 

As a responsible supplier, we take the health and safety of our employees, their families, customers, suppliers, and the communities we operate in, extremely seriously. As such we have implemented a number of precautionary actions in line with the recommendations of the World Health Organisation, UK Government and NHS in view of the increasing incidence of the corona virus around the world: 

  • We have implemented a restriction on any professional travel to areas of concern as listed by the UK Government  
  • Any returning travellers from high concern or locked down areas are asked to inform their supervisor and to self-isolate for a period of 14 days  
  • All staff must inform the business about any current personal and professional travel destinations in order that we can monitor our risk levels going forward 
  • We have implemented daily risk monitoring regarding countries of concern 
  • All staff have received communications on NHS & occupational health guidelines for regular and thorough handwashing to minimise the risk of spread  
  • We are encouraging staff to use virtual meeting technology to minimise the number of face to face meetings with colleagues, suppliers and customers 
  • Finally, we are recommending that staff do not greet with handshakes, hugs or kissing in order to minimise risk of spread through bodily contact 

This is very much a moving situation and we will endeavour to provide interested parties with as much information as possible on our management of the situation as further information emerges.
