The HR Suite In conjunction with The Hairdressing CouncilCoronavirus Update
The coronavirus is spreading rapidly. Besides China, human infection has been confirmed in almost 30
countries. The virus is transmitted by droplet infection, whereby secreted viruses can survive for several hours on hands or places such as door handles. The WHO is already assessing the spread as an international health emergency.
Currently, the risk of infection is mainly associated with travel to affected areas or close contact with people carrying the virus. Since contact at a distance of fewer than 2 metres and for 15 minutes is considered close, it is conceivable that in the near future working places could mutate into potential sources of infection. Both workers and employers should, therefore, recall their rights and obligations with regard to a possible pandemic.
The WRC has issued Coronavirus Guidance which can be accessed at this link:
As Minister Harris has stated, there is no room for either complacency or panic. Employers should
ensure they have an action plan prepared so that they can respond effectively to a suspected case of
the virus amongst their workforce and manage absences while limiting the impact on business
