Members of WE across Europe will have been receiving information and various instructions from their respective Governments. Information is also available on a number of key platforms such as EFSA and WHO which are updated regularly keeping us informed on this fast-moving situation.

Customers are encouraged to:

  • add additional regular sanitisations of water dispense points using sanitisation wipes or spray
  • practice good personal hygiene by washing hands with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  • regularly wipe-down often-touched surfaces with alcohol wipes

Distributor Operatives are encouraged to:

  • practice social distancing – ensure there is at least 2 metres between them and other people
  • when entering customer premises, wear gloves to reduce risk of contracting virus from surfaces
  • remove gloves, use hand sanitiser (at least 60% alcohol) and re-glove with fresh gloves before attending to the dispenser
  • don’t allow others to touch their work equipment

All are advised to avoid:

  • attending work if they feel unwell
  • touching their eyes, nose or mouth if their hands are not clean
  • people who are unwell
  • large gatherings within the work-space
