As of 12:00 noon on Saturday 23 January 2021, the Bailiwick of Guernsey entered its second lockdown, having been essentially Covid-free since June 2020. The Bailiwick had enjoyed an enviable level of freedom since June 2020 compared to many jurisdictions although travel to and from the island has remained restricted throughout.
Artemis’s offices are currently closed to all staff and visitors. The experience of the first lockdown that commenced in March 2020 has stood us in good stead to transition seamlessly to a home working environment. We continued to improve our technological infrastructure throughout last year and we are now reaping the rewards of that investment.
All meetings during this time will be conducted by video conference or telephone. We do not anticipate any reduction in service while we work remotely. We continue to follow the highest standards of data security and scrutiny of transactions and we are ensuring that these are not impacted by home working.
The States of Guernsey is taking this new threat to our community extremely seriously and travel remains extremely restricted. Each person travelling will need to make an application to the States of Guernsey at least 7 working days before the planned travel date. Artemis suspended all business travel in March 2020 and that remains in force.
The island has a comprehensive and effective programme of testing and contact tracing to help us to combat the virus and a programme of vaccinations is well under-way.
We are mindful of the global impact of this virus and the disruption to the lives and livelihoods of so many people. We wish all of our clients and business partners the very best in these challenging times.
If you have any questions about Artemis’s response to COVID-19, please contact us. If you do not have a usual contact, please call on 01481 729466 or e-mail email@example.com.
