Guideline details measures to consider during national lockdown
The National Office of Animal Health (NOAH) has updated its 'COVID-19 Animal Health Industry Guideline' following the latest national and local restrictions introduced throughout the UK.
The guideline has been developed to support animal health companies and their staff in following best practice guidance when planning and restructuring working activities around new and ongoing government restrictions.
It is reviewed every three months and aims to reassure the wider animal health community that NOAH member companies are following necessary precautions.
The most recent guideline details the measures which should be considered when developing company-specific practices during the current COVID-19 restrictions, including the national lockdown in place in England until 2 December. It includes guidance on social distancing, travel, PPE, meetings and field visits and biosecurity.
NOAH chief executive Dawn Howard said: “NOAH member companies, are following Government guidance, have adapted how they operate and have their own company-specific policies in place.
“This guideline reflects the areas they will have considered in drawing up their policies, and lets their staff and customers know that their safety and protection is paramount.
“We will keep our guideline under review, to reflect the ever-changing situation we find ourselves in.”
