The latest information for the public in regard to the Covid-19 pandemic is available on the government website. Click on the following link: https://www.gov.im/coronavirus. Information issued by Government indicates that there have been no cases of the virus on the Island to date (13.03.20).
As a precaution, however, the Commissioners have revised their ‘Business Continuity Plan’ to ensure that essential services, such as refuse collection, are maintained should a situation develop. Following Governmental advice they are enacting and considering a range of measures, some of which are being implemented from 13.03.20.
The measures already in place include appropriate additional staff training, revised working methods for staff/contractors, and information bulletins to the Commissioners.
As a further precaution to ensure continuity of the Authority’s core operations, staff will only be attending essential meetings from 13.03.20.
The measures now implemented also include more frequent, deep cleaning of our public conveniences, as well as signage advising on the use of the facilities.
It is important to monitor the situation and other actions will be implemented as necessary. All actions will be proportionate and taken following the advice of Government and Public Health Officials.
A further meeting with the Authority’s H&S consultant will take place on Tuesday 17th March.
