CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

Here’s the latest statement from our CEO to members’ queries regarding COVID-19 and working¬†here

As you all are well aware, the COVID-19 (or Coronavirus) is a topic of much concern. This note will be updated as regularly as the situation requires on the CICES website.

CICES is keen to protect the health and safety of its staff and members. Whilst we remain fully operational, we will cease holding face-to-face meetings and events until further notice. Some staff will be adjusting to home working and this may affect mailings and other forms of communication from the institution. There may be some teething problems as we adjust to this new temporary way of working and we ask for your patience.

Wherever possible we will try to make facilities available for meetings by telephone conference. However, logistically, this will not be possible in all instances.

Where a deposit has been paid to attend a CICES organised event that has now been cancelled, CICES will refund this.

CICES will continue to keep up-to-date on the situation and will be guided by government, Public Health England and Construction Industry Council advice.

If you have any concerns please speak with me or another senior member of staff privately.
