COVID-19 Statement

VIRTUS Data Centres maintains and operates a robust Business Continuity Plan (BCP) in line with our ISO certifications, which does include epidemic planning. These documents are under continual review in line with developments in national guidance.

All VIRTUS sites remain fully operational. We are continuing to closely monitor the current unfolding Coronavirus situation in the UK.

In line with recommendations from the UK Government we are looking to further restrict access to our data centres.  As of 06:00 on Friday 20th March, access to site will only be permitted under the following circumstances:

Individual attending is listed on the Epidemic Master Access List

OR

Individual has an approved emergency access request.  Please note that all access requests must now state the reason for the visit in order for the request to be approved by the VIRTUS site team

 

Any visitors feeling in anyway unwell or showing signs of illness, been in contact with anyone, or has travelled to affected areas will not be granted entry. 

As a reminder, we have also implemented the following measures:

  • COVID-19 declarations will be made at the site perimeter via the intercoms rather than in reception
  • Any planned non-essential site tours will be cancelled
  • We have implemented staff segregation to limit the exposure between teams and to prioritise essential works by essential staff.
