Following the Government’s proposed roadmap for the easing of restrictions, we are continuing, of course, to facilitate the safer alternatives of a telephone call or Microsoft Teams video conferencing meeting. However, we will also be able to facilitate a limited number of client meetings in the office with some of our advisers, by prior appointment, from 29th March onwards.
We have taken the appropriate action to ensure the office environment is deemed ‘Covid safe’ however, please note that anyone choosing to enter the premises does so at their own risk. Neither Atkins Bland nor anyone employed by Atkins Bland can accept any liability for the contagion risks someone takes by entering these.
Additionally, following the government guidance issued on 31st July 2020, it is mandatory for those visiting premises providing financial services to wear facial coverings. This means that if you are coming into our offices, you will be required to wear a mask. Your adviser and any staff you encounter will also be wearing a mask.
Our advice to staff remains for them to work from home if they can, until 21st June at the very earliest. However, we do continue to have a very small number of people working from the office. These people remain isolated from clients in the main part of the office.
With best wishes from all of us at Atkins Bland.
