Advice for Businesses on Employees Who Test Positive | New


A webinar tomorrow (Thursday, July 1) will be an opportunity for local businesses to get advice on what to do if staff test positive for Covid-19.

As cases increase, local businesses are urged to regularly test all employees and encourage vaccination.

Cornwall Council strives to provide additional help, support and guidance to businesses, especially in the hospitality industry, to support business continuity and keep them safe and open.

The webinar will take place from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. and you can register here: www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/webinar-covid-trading-safely-public-health-update-tickets-151978332283?aff=ebdssbeac

The session will also be available for looking back for anyone unable to join the day at www.businessregulatorysupport.co.uk/our-services/business-recovery/webinars/

Rachel Wigglesworth, Director of Public Health for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, said: “We need every business, every employer and every employee to accept the offer of regular testing twice a week.

“If you’re a business owner, we’re here to help you and your employees do the right thing and keep your business open.

“The tests are available at pharmacies and you can order them for free online. There are seven tests in a pack and the best practice is to text twice a week. ”

In addition, the board actively manages and monitors settings where there are outbreaks with an improved testing regime and robust case review work to understand how the virus was transmitted.

Rachel added: “We are not complacent and are monitoring the situation closely alongside Public Health England. We will consider all possible actions as the situation evolves. ”

The public health team is also working with health partners to urge all eligible residents to get vaccinated.

The NHS is working to expand pop-up and walk-in vaccination centers in a number of areas following the success of clinics this weekend in Stithians, Wadebridge and St Ives. Discover the latest news on this subject here: www.kernowccg.nhs.uk
