General / 18 March 2020
Today we have been advised by our landlord Findex that they have a staff member in our Invercargill office who has tested positive for COVID-19. Our thoughts are with the staff member and their family at this difficult time.
As a consequence of this development we have been advised by the Southern District Health Board that our staff in the Invercargill office must now self-isolate for a period of 14 days with effect from today. Our office will re-open on 1 April 2020.
Findex is following Ministry of Health guidance and have closed the Invercargill building and sent all of their staff home. We are also following this guidance.
All of our team are well and none are demonstrating symptoms of the virus. The Southern District Health Board has reassured us that in the absence of any symptoms in our Invercargill team there is no need for us to be tested or for any client that we may have been in contact with to isolate, be notified or to hold any concerns.
We have been referred to the Ministry of Health website for guidance and would encourage anyone with concerns to consult this website also.
We are fully equipped to work remotely and remain able to complete all client work as usual. We are also fully supported by our nationwide team.
If you hold any concerns, please contact Janet Copeland on 027 444 0771.
