CoronaVirus Lockdown – England.

From Thursday 5 November, England will go in to a month long period of lockdown.  We at REMET®  can ensure all of our customers that we will continue to manufacture and deliver as normalREMET®  was very well prepared for business continuity and distance working at the time of the initial lockdown in March, 2020; and since then we have consolidated and improved upon our systems, particularly in the manufacturing and warehousing facilities.  In the last seven months REMET®  has continued to formulate improved methods of working where colleagues work in their own team “bubbles”, with no physical contact between teams; has pioneered remote working technologies, and new standards of Industrial Hygiene.  All of these mean that REMET®  shall continue to work normally.

We understand that the next few months are going to be very difficult throughout Europe, and indeed, the rest of the world, so we wish everyone well, and look forward to meeting you all again in the near future.

In the meantime, remember: REMET®  is working normally, and “Stay Safe!”.

Current UK Government guidelines are:

Washing your hands

While coronavirus is not likely to survive for long periods of time on outdoor surfaces in sunlight, it can live for more than 24 hours in indoor environments. Washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or using hand sanitizer, regularly throughout the day will reduce the risk of catching or passing on the virus.

Covering your face

Coronavirus is carried in the air by tiny respiratory droplets that carry the virus. Larger droplets can land on other people or on surfaces they touch while smaller droplets, called aerosols, can stay in the air indoors for at least 5 minutes, and often much longer if there is no ventilation. Face coverings reduce the dispersion of these droplets, meaning if you’re carrying the virus you’re less likely to spread it when you exhale.

Making space

Transmission of the virus is most likely to happen within 2 meters, with risk increasing exponentially at shorter distances. While keeping this exact distance isn’t always possible, remaining mindful of surroundings and continuing to make space has a powerful impact when it comes to containing the spread.
