Coronavirus / COVID-19 Statement

Posted on: 25th of March 2020

We hope that all our customers and web site visitors are healthy and coping well with the coronavirus pandemic and the associated restrictions that have been implemented by the UK government (and others around the world).

Firstly, we would like to make clear that we fully understand the potential severity of a un-checked pandemic and support the government’s decision to enforce social distancing and close businesses most likely to support spread of the virus.

We would also like to state that we are doing our part to reduce the impact of the pandemic by carrying out as much work as possible remotely. This has included delaying some projects and carrying out some programming/commissioning work remotely that might otherwise have been done on site. Where we have had to attend sites we have insisted upon isolated working and carried out pre/post contact cleaning along with regular handwashing.

Government Policy

Some of Wired-Up AV’s work can play an important role in facilitating work from home, financial activities and communication with the outside world including reception of news / broadcast media. This is because our systems generally include provision of networking and internet access and distribution of audio-visual broadcasts. The government has advised that businesses providing these services should remain open and operational.

Further to the above current guidance specifies that work carried out in people’s homes can continue so long as:

  1. The tradesperson is well and displays no coronavirus symptoms, however mild
  2. The household is not isolating due to one of their members exhibiting symptoms
  3. The household is not shielding a vulnerable person

In the case of 2 and 3, essential work directly impacting the safety of the household subject to the agreement of the tradesperson and ensuring the necessary precautions are taken.

It has also been advised that construction work can continue, again subject to the necessary precautions.

The government has however ordered that people should only travel to work when absolutely necessary and should work from home wherever possible.

Our Position

Bearing in mind all of the guidance and our own view on supporting our customers, our position at present is as follows:

Our supply chain is operational and all suppliers report generally good stock levels. All have issued statements confirming that they too are complying with the current guidance and regulations, with only a necessary skeleton staff on site to fulfil orders etc. Whilst there may be individual cases of delays/non-availability, we are for the most part able to fulfil our orders and continue projects as normal in this respect.

This statement is subject to review as and when guidance and regulations are updated.
