Advice to all Members/Volunteers/Staff. 16th March 2020
The safety and well-being of our members, staff and visitors is very important and we are monitoring advice provided by the Irish authorities – Department of Health, Department of Foreign Affairs and the HSE – regarding Coronavirus/COVID-19. We are adopting a policy of high-compliance and seek to adopt further measures to minimise the risks where it is appropriate to do so.
In order to minimise the risk of the spread of COVID-19 at the station, at Outside Broadcast Events, meetings and training, you are asked to do the following:
If you or a member of your household is returning from any of the areas identified as high-risk by the HSE or the Department of Foreign Affairs; whether or not symptoms are evident, we request that you do not come into the station.
Please contact a member of staff immediately if you believe that a risk of transmission of the virus has arisen for any reason on the Community Radio Kilkenny City premises.
When at the station, events or meetings, please observe the personal hygiene recommendations.
- Meticulous hand washing.
- Covering coughs and sneezes in the correct manner to avoid the spread of infected water-droplets.
- Safe disposal of used tissues and cleaning of infected surfaces.
- Wipe the desk faders and desktops – wipes are provided in the studio.
Go to https://www2.hse.ie/conditions/coronavirus/coronavirus.html for up-to-date advice, description of symptoms, etc.
Community Radio Kilkenny City may cancel live programming at short notice in order to avoid the risk of transmission of the disease. We will broadcast similar programmes where it is possible to do so. Also, please notify us in advance of non-attendance due to COVID-19 concerns, so that we can put on alternative programming.
Community Radio Kilkenny City will endeavour to keep you up to date and ask you to follow public health guidelines at all times.
Thank you for your co-operation.
