It’s vital for businesses and services to prepare for visitors or employees who show symptoms of COVID-19.
How do you protect them? what do you need?
According to the latest government information, if you have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), get a test as soon as possible. Stay at home until you get the result.
The main symptoms of coronavirus are:
- a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
- a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
- a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
Most people with coronavirus have at least 1 of these symptoms.
Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:
- you’re worried about your symptoms
- you’re not sure what to do
Call 111 if you cannot get help online. Do not go to places like a GP surgery, hospital or pharmacy.
Working on site
To keep employees and volunteers safe you should:
- make sure on-site employees can spot symptoms
- tell workers with symptoms to quarantine immediately
- explain new procedure and provide training where necessary
- consider the protected characteristics of your employees when making decisions, and to prevent discrimination
To support employees working remotely you should:
- provide the right equipment for people to work from home
- keep remote and on-site employees connected
- send updates to employees when the situation changes
- make sure you consider employees’ needs (you have a responsibility to prevent discrimination at work)
- look after people’s mental health
