Carter Jonas: Updated response to Coronavirus
Since my email of 17 March 2020, a great deal has developed in the advice from Government as to how the country might best protect itself from the worst effects of Coronavirus, culminating in what amounts to a lockdown, as announced by the Prime Minister in his 20:30 speech on Monday 23 March.
In fact, in response to the Government statements of the 20 March 2020, when it was said that to protect the NHS and save lives we should all, as far as possible, stay at home, we decided we would close our offices and that all of our people should work from home from the Monday morning.
Having developed a robust IT network, we were content that the systems and policies that we had already put in place, meant that we were confident that we had a structure, to enable our people to continue to work effectively, and in so doing, support our clients from home. I’m pleased to say that in the two days since we started home working, all of our people have been able to continue their work as if they were sitting in their office.
Please note that where possible, whilst our offices are closed, it will be best if all communication to our people is by email or telephone. Because of restrictions to office access, there may be a delay in receiving and responding to mail sent through the postal service, to our offices.
In the link below you will find full details of the practical guidance we have given to our teams to ensure we are still able to offer our clients excellent service, as well as the various measures we have put in place to mitigate the risk posed by Coronavirus.
As the situation continues to develop and Government guidance changes, our working practices and response may change, and so we recommend you check this page regularly.
