  • new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

Good hygiene has never been more critical. Please remember:

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover coughs or sneezes with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser with at least 60% alcohol. If you do not have access to either hand wash facilities or hand sanitiser, please contact your Barker Ross Account Manager immediately.

If you've been requested to self-isolate please remain at home for 14 days and speak to your Barker Ross Account Manager prior to retruning to work.
