COVID-19 Awareness

Written by Rebecca Saunders



We are sure you have heard and read about the wide spread outbreak of Coronavirus that was declared a Public Health Emergency of International Concern on 30 January 2020 by the World Health Organisation. At Onroad, we always want to make sure our students are a priority, which is why we have put in place some precautionary measures. 
(All of our team have been instructed to carry hand sanitiser, gloves and masks in their car, (subject to availability). Cleanliness within the car is a high priority and we will always do our best to ensure our students' safety.)

Reducing the risk to Students 
While the Coronavirus is of concern, it is important to remember that most people who display symptoms (such as fever, cough, sore throat or tiredness) are likely suffering from a cold or other respiratory illness—not Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The Department of Health advises that people most at risk of getting the virus are those who have recently been in in a high-risk country/region and people who have been in close contact with someone who has a confirmed case of coronavirus. 

If a person has returned from a country or region that is at higher risk for COVID-19, they should not have contact with others. This relates to people who have travelled to (including transiting through) mainland China in the 14 days before the onset of illness left or transited through Iran on or after 1 March 2020, if you have travelled from the Republic of Korea (South Korea) on or after 5 March 2020 or if you have had close or casual contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the 14 days before illness onset.  

Hygiene practices should be reinforced; in particular washing hands frequently with soap and water, before and after eating, and after going to the toilet (see more information about hand washing published by the Department of Health, Covering the mouth when coughing and sneezing, disposing of tissues, and using alcohol-based hand sanitiser 

If unwell, avoid contact with others (i.e. touching, being in close proximity to others etc.)

We here at Onroad take this matter very seriously and it is important we ensure that the Health and Safety of our Driver Trainers and our Learners is our number one priority at all times.
