Coronavirus - Update on our Work
March 23rd 2020
We are in difficult times with the unprecedented coronavirus pandemic imposing severe restrictions on individuals and businesses.
Huckle Ecology is a small business, and a single director-led company - in effect I am self-employed and currently ineligible for government support through the crisis.
However, working from home is the norm for me and so I can carry on providing remote services from home without having to alter working office-based working practices.
In relation for ecological surveys and site-based field work, I am pleased that The Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM) has published some excellent advice on undertaking field work while observing the restrictions imposed by the Coronavirus.
While these specifically refer to ecology surveys, they are also likely to be applicable to other field work. Advice may change if travel restrictions become tighter for example, but at present this advice seems sensible. I will be reviewing the need for, and where I consider the risk of contracting or spreading the virus can be avoided, carrying on with field surveys for the immediate future.
At all times, though, I will ensure that social distancing is maintained and to ensure that the safety of everyone is not compromised. This will involved not engaging in face to face meetings, and reducing the need for travel as far as possible.
We all have families and friends who are vulnerable and we all have a role to play in reducing the effects of the virus on our society!
