Covid-19 Update for Coquet Island Shellfish


Principles for re-opening.

We are committed to reopening in a calm and well organised manner,which reassures all staff that the factory is a safe place to work, and that all government guidance is followed carefully.

We are committed to supporting the welfare and wellbeing of our staff.


Protective measures

Our rationale is to minimise the number of contacts within the workplace and therefore staff numbers will initially be reduced in size to enable social distancing to be maintained


Staff will be issued with PPE and we will follow government guidance to ensure -

Regular handwashing

Regular cleaning of surfaces

Staggered breaks and lunches

Social distancing on the factory floor

A revised process flow


Any staff member exhibiting symptoms of Covid will be asked to remain at home and self-isolate.


As the situation evolves and further government guidance is issued, we will update this information.
