COVID POLICY

COVID-19 MANAGEMENT PLAN

To ensure the safety, well-being and peace of mind of our guests and employees, the following measures have been implemented.

It is expected that all employees will take the below measures seriously and everyone will do their part to ensure our business and those working, or visiting are not affected by COVID-19.

FLO & ADA has a registered COVID-Safe Plan that has been submitted and is updated with each SA Health stage change.

We ensure that the recommendations outlined in our COVID-Safe Plan are implemented.

GENERAL MEASURES

Eliminating contact with at-risk employees

Any FLO & ADA employee, their immediate family, or household members that have travelled, (as per current government regulations) will be required to isolate themselves immediately and remain away from work for 7 days from the date of their return. They may return to work if they are showing no symptoms at the end of 7 days isolation period.

If FLO & ADA s develop any COVID-19 identified symptoms (fever, dry cough, sore throat, fatigue, shortness of breath) they are to seek immediate medical attention. They may not return to work until they have a medical certificate clearing them for work.

If a FLO & ADA employee comes into contact with a person confirmed, or suspected, of having COVID-19, they must immediately be tested. They may return to work if they are showing no symptoms and show a negative test result.
