CORONA: current situation

Information on the current Covid-19 situation at LHG

Due to current events, we would like to inform you how we deal with Covid-19 cases in the LHG Group.

Our employees inform us immediately if they receive a positive test result. We will then initiate appropriate measures.

First of all, those affected list all the people in the work environment they had contact with up to two days before their first symptoms. We send people in the so-called category 1 (≥ 15 minutes of close contact) home and to the test immediately. They must go into quarantine. How long this takes and whether there has to be a second test is determined by the health authorities responsible. For people in the so-called category 2  (total of < 15 minutes of contact) we set up immediate tests. They show result after just fifteen minutes. If tests are negative, the contact persons can resume their work immediately. If they are positive, the health departement takes care of further steps.

AHA-L (in Englisch: distance, hygiene, everyday masks and ventilation), these rules still determine our interaction. It is necessary in all buildings to wear mouth and nose protection; it can only be laid off in the workplace.

We are open to hints, suggestions and ideas on how we can improve even further. Please do not hesitate to contact us via our specialists for occupational safety: fasi@lhg.com.

Please remember: It is up to us how we get through this time. Let us continue to follow all the rules consistently! Stay healthy!
