Update on Coronavirus

WOG Lamprecht GmbH is very concerned about the geographical extension of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, especially about the rising number of cases in Europe and in our home country. Our thoughts are with all affected worldwide!

WOG Lamprecht is following the World Health Organization’s (WHO) strategy of disease containment. So far, the WHO has not imposed restrictions on the movement of goods across borders and international trade. However, local authorities may impose restrictions for specific areas showing clusters of infections. Of course, we are following such measures strictly.

The health and the safety of our employees has highest priority for us. In this respect, we are adopting the WHO guidelines for all our staff.

We are ordering 14 days self-quarantine for employees returning from specific affected regions. We also prescribe following proper precautions and recommend contacting the local medical services for all employees showing symptoms like fever, cough or difficulty in breathing. Besides those measures we instructed our employees to:

  1. Wash hands frequently with soap and water and use alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  2. Avoid touching mouth or eyes to limit the risk of infection spread.
  3. Cover their mouth and nose with a tissue, or a sleeve or flexed elbow when coughing or sneezing, throw the used tissue into a closed bin immediately after use; wash hands/skin well afterwards.
  4. Limit physical contact with colleagues and visitors in the workplace: reduce the frequency of face-to-face contact and avoid direct contact, e.g. hand shake. Instead of shaking hands we recommend to welcome visitors with a smile.

We have available hand disinfectants in all our offices and encourage our staff to follow the above WHO recommendations. In order to be effective in this respect, we encourage all our partners to also follow the same guidelines.

We are monitoring the situation very closely and are prepared to adapt further measures if necessary.
