COVID-19: ILSI Europe team will be working from home from 16 March in compliance with the Belgian authorities
ILSI Europe is a Belgian based organisation and we have been informed that the national authorities decided on Thursday 12 March to strengthen the existing mechanism to stem the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Among others, additional social distancing measures will be applied until 3 April inclusive.
Protecting our team, our networks of experts and contributing to contain the spread of the epidemic is our priority. From 16 March, ILSI Europe team will be working from home. We are assessing the evolution of the spread of this pandemic in Belgium and in European Union on a daily basis. We closely follow additional measures that may be recommended, applying them appropriately.
We are well aware that these decisions may have an impact in ILSI Europe and its network. However, health safety is first at the time we stay committed with our activities.
Finally, we would like to remind you that basic hygiene measures are still valid, namely washing your hands with soap, coughing and sneezing into your elbow and avoiding close contact. If you have the slightest doubt, you are invited to consult your doctor. Everyone should help limit the spread of the virus.
Thank for your understanding.
