COVID-19: INTERLOG BRIEFING NOTE

During the last few weeks, the COVID-19/Coronavirus outbreak has emerged as an issue of global significance, affecting hundreds of thousands of people and having a growing impact on the global economy. As the situation continues to evolve, we want to be transparent in our communication and keep you updated on how we are addressing the situation and the proactive steps Interlog is taking to help reduce the spread of the virus, which includes a ban on travels to China and the restriction on non-essential business travels.

For the health and safety of our employees and the continuity of service, we ask our customers and providers to take necessary steps to ensure their employees visiting our premises meet the following requirements, as well as the ones published by the government health agencies: 

  • ​Persons who visited or transited through “areas where the virus is actively circulating, such as defined by the Ministry of Health and travel health advice (China, Hong Kong, Macau, South Korea, Singapore, Iran, Italy – Lombardy, Veneto, Emilia-Romagna and Piedmont), cannot enter Interlog premises unless a period of 14 days has passed since the date they left the affected areas, and provided they have no signs or symptoms compatible with COVID-19 infection.
  • Persons who have been in close contact* with a confirmed case of COVID-19 cannot enter Interlog premises without 14 days having elapsed since the date of the last contact with the confirmed case, and provided they have no signs or symptoms compatible with COVID-19 infection.

COVID-19 situation involved additional steps linked in particular to the subjects of prevention, internal communication and information. 

  • We have informed our employees of the prevention and individual protection measures to be followed in order to reduce the risk of contamination, through barrier behaviors and gestures.
  • Our employees coming back from a country identified as at-risk are requested to respect a quarantine period of 14 days, working from home.
