I'm sorry to hear of this. Please can you tell me what your specific question is in relation to this so that I can best advise? and how long ave you worked there for?
OK thank you, ***** ***** is your specific question please so that I can advise?
OK I understand and thank you for providing this information. Please do not worry and leave it with me for now; I will get back to you with my answer as soon as I can, which will be at some point today. The system will notify you when this happens. Please do not reply in the meantime as this may unnecessarily delay my response. Many thanks.
Many thanks for your patience, I am pleased to be able to continue assisting with your query now. You can find the rules you are supposed to follow here:
Specifically the following parts:
You must self-isolate for 14 days after you were in contact with the person who has tested positive for coronavirus. This is crucial to avoid unknowingly spreading the virus.
Self-isolation means staying at home and not going outside your home at any time. If you live with other people, they do not need to self-isolate, but they should avoid contact with you as far as possible and follow advice on hygiene.
So the key is that the 14 days start from the day you last had contact with the person who was infected. Until the 14 days are up you should not be leaving the house, let alone going to work so if you are still within these 14 days you must refuse to go into work no matter what measures the employer says they have taken.
Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
