COVID - 19 (Coronavirus)
As you will be aware, there is currently a virus officially known as COVID -19 (Coronavirus) which is causing disruption across the world.
Some businesses have had to consider shutting their offices along with some schools and other places where large numbers of people are likely to be in contact with each other.
This is a new virus and as a result, the government is providing advice as and when they have it. The main advice currently is for businesses and individuals to do all they can to help prevent the spread of the virus and to be prepared for potential workplace closures.
Acclaim Handling are continuing and committed to operate their business as normal and will attempt to provide a service to our customers where possible.
