You should self-isolate, let your line manager know and stay away from work. You can order a test from the NHS. If you test positive for covid-19, follow the usual sickness absence reporting procedures.

We are following the advice of Public Health England and the HSE in Ireland. In accordance with that advice, there are currently no plans to close any sites or offices but we are putting in place contingency plans so that we can continue to support our employees and run the business safely and efficiently should closures be required.
Any decision to close a site or office will be taken by the in-country Managing Director in conjunction with the Group Strategy & SHES Director and all employees based at that site or office will be informed.
If you have any concerns about site or offices closure or you feel that a site or office should be closed, even on a temporary basis to enable cleaning to take place, you should raise a query through the dedicated email address firstname.lastname@example.org or with your line manager or People Business Partner.
You should make sure that you have your PPE and that it is in good condition. Before entering the home, you should check that no-one in a high risk category has been in the property. This would include anyone who has:
If they have not, you can carry on at work as normal. Wash your hands or use hand sanitiser before entering and immediately after leaving the property. If they answer yes to any of the above questions, you should not enter the property and you should speak to your line manager for further advice
As long as none of you are showing any of the symptoms and have not been in close contact with someone who has those symptoms, there is no reason why you can’t keep going to work as normal.
The symptoms are a new, continuous cough and/or a high temperature. We need to work as a team and look after one another. Remember to:
There are currently no plans to close sites and we are working hard to keep our employees safe and to keep our business run efficiently. To do so, we have to consider different ways of working and of keeping each other safe. We all have a role to play.
If you need to self-isolate, we will look at all of the options including sick leave, taking holiday, working from home (if that’s possible) and special leave on a paid or an unpaid basis.
If you think that you may be experiencing symptoms or you have been in contact with someone who has symptoms, please contact your line manager. They can speak to our People Business Partners for advice. Please use the 2-1-2 Reporting system using the Occupational Health option to report a case of self-isolation or a confirmed diagnosis.
