Coronavirus Covid-19 Update 17th March 2020.

We are all aware of the increasing impact that the Coronavirus pandemic is having on our daily lives.  Our priority is to protect and minimise the risk to our staff and visitors whilst at the same time ensuring we continue to service the needs of our clients and contacts as effectively as we can and with minimal disruption.

We believe we have robust continuity plans in place to deal with the worsening crisis.  All Mundays staff are now able to work remotely and we are confident that we have appropriate systems in place to enable us to continue to provide our advice and services, to receive and transfer funds, to circulate paperwork and to arrange execution, exchange and delivery of vital documents. 

For the present our offices remain open but we will be encouraging our staff to work remotely where they can and have taken the further precaution of encouraging our staff wherever possible to make alternative arrangements from face to face meetings and not to attend larger gatherings, such as networking events and to avoid non-essential travel on public transport.  To assist we are asking clients and others to avoid visiting our offices wherever possible and to do so only by prior appointment.

A small number of our staff who have recently returned from higher-risk destinations (such as France and Portugal) have been asked to self-isolate in accordance with Public Health England’s guidelines.  We have asked all staff to be mindful of the situation and to self-isolate if they, or those they are living with or have been in contact with, are displaying symptoms of the virus.

This is an unprecedented situation for all of us and we at Mundays will do everything we can to assist our clients through these difficult times.  If you have any queries regarding your business or personal affairs then please do call or email your normal Mundays contacts and we will do all we can to assist you.

Of course the social and economic landscape is changing daily but we will do everything we can to keep on top of the developing situation. 

We will make further announcements when necessary and we will keep our website updated as new developments unfold.

With our best wishes.
