COVID-19 Overview

Access to all Department buildings is being controlled in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Attend Department premises only when you are authorised and scheduled to do so. If you have no scheduled activity, then do not come to the Department.

Departmental members should adhere to the measures put in place by their Divisional local coordinators in conjunction with the Silver Team. 

Visitors to the Department should follow the advice of their host which will include being shown where they can wash or sanitise their hands, the wearing of a face covering (needs to cover the mouth and nose) in all common areas including cycle racks, entrances, corridors and toilets, and observing social distancing. 

Before a visit takes place the host should complete a risk assessment to ensure that control measures are defined. The assessment can be found here
