As we are all affected by the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19), the team at Woodwill Security Services would like to reassure you that we’re here and still working hard to provide ongoing solutions for our clients.

The safety of our staff and clients is our top priority. We are taking additional measures to ensure staff are safe and protected when on duty, and that they’re taking the correct steps to protect clients as well. This means our security guards are:

  • Washing their hands regularly with soap and water, for at least 20 seconds
  • Using hand sanitiser
  • Covering their mouths and noses with a tissue if they sneeze – if anybody shows signs of coronavirus infection, they will self-quarantine immediately
  • Avoiding close contact with people and practicing social distancing
  • Following all government advice

What security threats does the COVID-19 outbreak pose?

Coronavirus poses threats for people, but this has a knock-on effect for wider society – and this affects the properties we live and work in. With much of the UK workforce being told to work from home or self-isolate, offices and commercial buildings are being left unattended. There’s also the issue of public-facing buildings such as bars and restaurants having to close, leaving them vacant too. As demand for goods increases, businesses like shops and supermarkets that do remain open could require a higher security presence.

Some people are abroad and not able to travel back to the UK following flight or transport cancellations – sadly, others might have to be treated in hospital, or might have travelled to be with family, leaving domestic properties vacant too.

This can put both domestic and commercial properties at risk from:

  • Break ins
  • Vandalism
  • Anti-social behaviour
  • Social disturbances
