We just wanted to reach out and let you know the measures we have put in place to effectively (and safely) deliver LivingLife magazine to our normal distribution area.
We are following Royal Mail advice on letter delivery and the following statement:
Public Health England (PHE) has advised that people receiving parcels are not at risk of contracting the coronavirus. From experience with other coronaviruses, we know that these types of viruses don’t survive long on objects, such as letters or parcels. This complements the highly publicised guidance from PHE for people to wash their hands more often than usual using soap and hot water.
We are actively monitoring this rapidly evolving situation. We take the health and safety of our people very seriously. We have provided guidance to our people, our customers and communities in which we operate, to help prevent the spread of any infection. We are doing so in line with preventative guidance from Public Health England.
We have implemented the following internal steps to keep both our readers and distribution staff safe:
1) Any delivery person showing symptoms will not be delivering the magazine.
2) All our delivery persons will wash hands regularly and before & after delivery in their area.
3) We have instructed delivery people not to engage with the public during their round (not that we generally do anyway)
