CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

Information on shielding and self-isolation

The primary purpose of the letter sent by the government is to identify the 2% of the UK population who are at critical risk of infection. The remaining 98% are still at risk and need to manage the risk alongside their employer.

You can decide if you need to self- isolate and discuss with your employer. In the first instance your employer should offer you remote working if possible. If this is not possible then you will need to consider whether you fall into the furloughed employee category – https://www.gov.uk/guidance/check-if-you-could-be-covered-by-the-coronavirus-job-retention-scheme

Because you are well enough to work, however unable to attend the work because of the risk of contracting Coronavirus, we are unable to offer a fit note to cover this period. You will need to work with your employer to resolve this situation.

The Government and NHS are well prepared to deal with this virus.

You can help too.  Germs can live on some surfaces for hours.

 To protect yourself and others:

  • Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze.
  • Bin the tissue, and to kill the germs, wash your hands with soap and water, or use a sanitise gel.
  • If you have arrived back from China within 14 days follow the specific advice for returning travellers. This is the best way to slow the spread of almost any germs, including Coronavirus.
