Technical workshop and coronavirus

The Technical Workshop has been postponed (like many other events) to the new dates in July, when we anticipate the problems with coronavirus will have eased and business life approaching back to normality. We will of course keep monitoring circumstances and any restrictions in place.

The latest WHO travel advise can be found using the following link.


The WHO gives advice on how to protect yourself:

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand rub
  • When coughing and sneezing, cover mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue – discard tissue immediately into a closed bin and clean your hands with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water
  • Avoid direct contact with people who are coughing, sneezing, or have a fever
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early

The WHO also has a list of ‘Myth busters’.
