The recent news of a new variant of Coronavirus called Omicron has been all over the media lately, and is not something as a nation we wanted to hear just before Christmas.

Although the cases are being reported as mild, the concern is the risk of spread for the new variant – so we must continue to keep one another safe and be sensible, particularly as we go through the winter.

The Government has responded to this and put measures in place to keep the nation safe and minimise the risk of the new variant. More information on the latest Government Guidance can be seen below or by clicking here.

New rules in response to Omicron variant , this guidance applies to ENGLAND

  • You must wear a face covering in shops and on public transport. Face coverings should be worn in communal areas of universities, colleges and schools by staff, visitors and pupils or students in year 7 and above.
  • If you’re travelling to England from abroad you must take a PCR test before the end of day 2 following your arrival and self-isolate until you get a negative test result, even if you’re fully vaccinated.
  • If you’re a contact of someone who may have been infected with the Omicron variant, you must self-isolate for 10 days, regardless of your age or vaccination status.

We have reminded all staff of our existing COVID-19 policies that have been in place since March 2020 to ensure the safety of our staff and the wider public.

We are closely monitoring the Government advice and any further changes if required going forward, will be communicated out as promptly as possible.

Our service levels at C&D and throughout the Palletforce Network are still operating, however, due to the extremely high volumes of freight our industry are experiencing at the moment, as well as a national driver shortage and fuel supply delays- certain services have been suspended and services may be delayed. To read more about this, click here.

Here is also a reminder of our Christmas operations schedule, click here to find out more.

If you do have any concerns regarding this, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Keep safe everyone.
