SES Water issues coronavirus update

SES Water has provided an update on what the company is doing to ensure customers are protected from COVID-19 and says it is "continuously reviewing business continuity plans that include the possibility of dealing with a pandemic".

In a statement the company said: “We are continuously monitoring the Government’s updates and guidance regarding COVID-19 and are also taking precautionary steps to protect the health of our workforce. We have shared with our employees the preventative measures they need to take as guided by NHS and Government advice. 

“We’re continuously reviewing our business continuity plans that include the possibility of dealing with a pandemic. We will continue to update these plans as necessary as we learn more about the COVID-19 situation, to meet our service obligations to our customers, communities and the environment.” 

SES is screening visitors and employees before they come into the company’s offices to ensure they are following Government advice.  

The statement continued: “We are continuing to work closely with our critical suppliers to ensure they are taking appropriate action and can continue to provide goods and services to us. 

The company has also advised that drinking water is safe and because COVID-19 is a respiratory illness, it is not spread through tap water.  

The virus would be eliminated very effectively by drinking water treatment, especially the primary disinfection process (chlorination),” the company added.
