COVID-19 Safety

During these unprecedented times, it is essential we all work together to play our part in minimising COVID-19 risks and to keep our customers and staff safe and well. We are all required to reduce the probability of coming into contact with someone who may have COVID-19, but not yet showing symptoms, this will ultimately mean some changes to what you may be used to within the Covid Secure process.
