All 3rd party users of RM Condor.
Please take for action the following statement issued by OC Base Company:
‘The Prime Minister has announced that the UK has moved from the Contain phase to the Delay phase to tackle the outbreak of coronavirus. This is a significant moment. Across the nation, everyone will now be engaged in slowing the spread of the virus. At this stage there is no blanket restriction to access RM Condor however, this may be an escalation measure enforced on us in the near future.
At this stage, in line with Government guidelines and to protect all those living, working and using the facilities on site, anyone who has a high temperature (fever) and/or new onset persistent cough are requested not to enter camp. Individuals with such symptoms must self-isolate at home as per the detailed advice at www.gov.uk (COVID-19). The MPGS Staff have been directed to question all non-essential personnel entering camp: anyone who is symptomatic will be denied access to site.
As the PoC for your organisation I am relying on you to inform your members of this measure and to ask that you support the Head of Establishment by correctly messaging the restriction. The MPGS Staff are under strict orders to implement these measures and will do so in a professional manner. Your assistance and cooperation are greatly appreciated to reduce any potential friction or embarrassment. Please feel free to contact me directly with any issues or concerns. I would ask that you acknowledge this message by email to me at the earliest opportunity.’
