Aermec’s approach is to follow official UK government advice, reinforced with increased cleaning and hygiene processes. We ask all staff and visitors to our offices to respect the following guidance, particularly for returning travellers from abroad, and to follow best practice personal hygiene standards as outlined below.
Before coming to our office for a meeting or any other reason, please note:
If you have been to one of the following places you should self-isolate and not visit Aermec UKs office, even if you have no symptoms: Wuhan City and Hubei Province, Iran, Daegu or Cheongdo (Republic of Korea), any Italian town under containment measures.
- Call NHS 111
- Not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

- Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
If you are visiting our office and feel unwell:

Health and Safety:
All visitors to our office are encouraged to wash their hands or use hand-sanitiser on arriving in the building, after using public transport and after coughing and sneezing. Cleaners have been instructed to pay particular attention to frequently touched communal areas.
Public Health England recommends that the following general cold and flu precautions are taken to help prevent people from catching and spreading COVID-19:
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze.
- Put used tissues in the bin straight away.
- Wash your hands with soap and water often – use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
- Try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
- Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean.
We will communicate any changes to our policy in the event of further official government advice and guidance changes.
