Covid-19 is a new strain of coronavirus that was first detected in Wuhan City, China, in January 2020. As you will be aware, the landscape surrounding the Covid-19 outbreak is changing daily, so it is highly recommended to pay close attention to updates from the Department of Health and Social Care and the NHS.
At HealthTrust Europe, we take the safety and wellbeing of our staff, clients and suppliers very seriously, and are working with our community to uphold our rigorous safety standards at this time.
We recommend that individuals continue to adhere to the safety guidance and precautions put in place by Public Health England. Practical hygiene measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus remain focussed on promoting good hand and respiratory hygiene, such as:
- Washing your hands regularly with soap and water and use alcohol-based sanitisers
- Covering your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve when you cough or sneeze
- Disposing of tissues straightaway and washing hands with soap and water
- Avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth
