Statement from Aitken Spence PLC - 7 October 2020

To all our stakeholders;

We wish to inform that an employee of Aitken Spence has been exposed to COVID-19 (not diagnosed) as a member of her immediate family has been diagnosed as a COVID patient.

In line with our special Covid-19 health and safety procedures, we have conducted contact tracing at our premises to identify persons who may have been exposed (i.e. close contacts defined as any individual within 6 feet of an infected person 2 days before onset of illness until the patient is isolated) and will communicate directly with stakeholders as and when required. We have also identified and isolated possible exposed areas for disinfection within 24 hours.

If you need to liaise with our officials for any essential work, please call ahead to make an appointment. As the health, safety and wellbeing of our employees, stakeholders and society is of paramount importance to us, please cooperate with the safety procedures and protocols established.

Aitken Spence has maintained precautionary procedures from the onset of the outbreak to safeguard our stakeholders, and to support national efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Accordingly, we are vigilantly monitoring the situation and will continue to work proactively with the Ministry of Health, the Epidemiology Unit and other relevant authorities to follow standard procedures.

We humbly request that the privacy of these individuals is respected and to avoid circulating unchecked information to avoid unnecessary panic. We will keep you informed of further developments.
