You will probably be aware that the UK is entering a period of ‘social distancing’, as the UK Government’s main tactic to slow the spread of Covid-19 within the population. As a result, all Fapas® employees that can work from home are doing so, and measures to reduce interaction between laboratory and dispatch staff (who are not able to do their work from home) are in place. We are confident that we should be able to continue to provide the excellent service you are accustomed to. We wish you well in these most difficult times.
