Stratford Original COVID-19 measures

Important! Due to the situation around CODIV-19, we are adopting certain measures.
24 March 2020

Dear Members,

Due to the latest developments around COVID-19, we have been actively monitoring the situation in the UK and following the government’s directive about delaying the onset of this pandemic. The situation has been evolving on a daily basis. To this effect, we are adopting the following measures immediately:

➤ Some of our services will be suspended. This includes our certified training, those booked onto training should have received an email update informing them of this cancellation. All cancellations will be rescheduled for a date in the future. We recommend that BID members check our website and social media for the latest information.

➤ From today, 16th March 2020, we will be encouraging our executive staff to work remotely when possible and to implement physical distancing strategies to keep safe. We will reassess these strategies weekly and will be informed by further updates from the CDC, WHO, and government directives about the situation.

➤ Our staff members will be contactable via email and the BID will continue to be operational during business hours, Monday to Friday, 9:00 – 17:30. All staff will have access to documents remotely and will, electively, attend some appointments already booked but will aim to avoid large and/or lengthy meetings. We have a business continuity plan in place which will allow us to carry on with our duties with minimal disruption to processes. 

➤ Finally, we will continue to keep you updated on all the current official guidance and basic advice regarding COVID-19. Please find the latest information from the NHS using the following link.

You will find all the useful links and information on our regularly updated webpage

We will continue to work in the background to make necessary adjustments to our work and operations and seeking ways to maintain the value we give our members, whilst still upholding the health and wellbeing of both our BID members and employees. In the meantime, we are still running some projects and will keep members informed of any developments with our activities.

You will be able to reach us through our personal or our general as well as on Twitter @StratfordOrig

Best wishes,
Stratford Original BID Team
