Further to our update on 25 August, we can confirm that colleagues who have completed their self-isolation periods have been continuing to return to our Northampton facility on a gradual basis. From 4 September, colleagues who were self-isolating as a precautionary measure following the temporary ceasing of production at the facility on 21 August will be able to return to work. We will be bringing colleagues back in phases in line with customer demand.
We are continuing to work closely with the Department of Health & Social Care, Public Health England and other government bodies to ensure that the process of returning our colleagues to work is carried out as safely and smoothly as possible.
We would like to sincerely thank all of the colleagues at our Northampton facility for the extraordinary levels of resilience, patience and professionalism that they have shown throughout this exceptionally challenging period for everyone connected with the site.
