The recent announcement that Covid 19 is now classified as a global pandemic has no doubt caused concern for both ourselves, our customers and other businesses.
We'd like to reassure our customers that according to the European Food Safety Authority ‘There is currently no evidence that food is a likely source or route of transmission of the virus.’ We would encourage our clients to rest assured that we are taking all the necessary precautions and more to ensure business continues without disruption, with health and safety continuing to be at the forefront of our operations.
As i licensed catering establishment we adhere to strict personal hygiene training with every member of staff - hand washing is imperative and we take this seriously, ensuring staff do this thoroughly after every task and each break time and avoid touching their face.
Whilst we currently have no members of staff who have recently visited or been in contact with anyone who has visited a high risk area, Our team members have been told to stay home if suffering from any sort of contagious symptoms and we complete return to work forms for those who have been away on holiday or returning to work after being sick.
Our principal concern is for the welfare of our customers, visitors and staff. We are closely monitoring the advice of WHO and the department of health in relation to Coronavirus and its impact on events. Precautionary measures are in place at the venues we cater for and we are monitoring the situation as it develops
