LOROS Staff self isolation guidance

Please read the latest guidance on LOROS staff self isolation.

COVID vigilance

It is necessary for us all to remain vigilant with regards to COVID safety measures as positive COVID cases are once again rising throughout the country. Here at LOROS, we must make every effort to protect ourselves, the organisation and most importantly our patients and their families from any potential of an outbreak within the building.

Please ensure that you continue to follow the below:

  • wear a face mask as instructed

  • undertake LFT’s on a regular basis

  • sanitize your hands regularly

  • respect social distancing in the corridors, offices and whilst eating

  • If you are able to work at home please do liaise with your line manager and take up that opportunity to help us maintain safe numbers within the main building.

Thank you for your ongoing cooperation.
