Please click or see below for a coronavirus update from Court Guinness for 14/03/2020
I have had to make certain changes and move some things around in the light of Coronavirus (COVID-19)
I will not be attending Trade Fairs for the foreseeable future. All overseas business trips are also cancelled until further notice. I will not be attending business networking events until further notice.
I cannot meet face-to-face with anyone who:
- Has returned from a category one or category two country within the past 60 days.
- Has been in physical contact with anyone who satisfies condition one within the past 60 days.
- Has been in contact with anyone who has contracted COVID-19 within the past 60 days
- Has contracted COVID-19 within the past 60 days.
There are a number of reasons for this and I was in a very high risk group for COVID-19 and the risk for myself was raised on 13/3/2020.
In addition the risk was raised yesterday by no less than the prestigious medical journal, The Lancet, who stated that the risk of both contracting and exacerbating the effects for COVID-19 was higher in people who have to take certain medications that people with heart conditions are required to take. Medicines which I am required to take for my heart conditions which many regular readers are aware of.
I do not wish to totally self-isolate but I will at short notice if the need arises.
I am still available for meetings and workshops via a new web-based collaborative working and video conferencing tool which I have just deployed. This tool is a beast and a thing of excellence in software engineering and I have no doubt that my colleagues who use it will enjoy using it and gain benefit from it over previous tools. I will also make more time available in my diary which is outside of standard UK/EU working hours for additional meetings.
The Trade House Magazine will be published on schedule.
I apologise for the changes that I have had to make.
This website will be kept up to date in light of any developments.
