Stone Radio has become aware that Stone’s Royal Mail delivery office has undergone an ‘intensive clean’ after three employees tested positive for coronavirus.
Those affected workers are now self-isolating at home following the outbreak at the Stone sorting office. Locals are reporting a noticeable delay in service, with many now reporting having had no deliveries for over a week.
It is understood other staff members are also being swabbed as a precaution.
A spokesman said: “Royal Mail takes the health and safety of its colleagues, its customers and the local communities in which we operate very seriously.
“We have carried out an intensive clean of the site and have organised additional cleaning of key touch points and all communal areas. We are keeping the CWU and colleagues updated.
“Throughout this crisis, every decision we make puts the health of our people and customers first. We have a range of preventive measures in place to protect both our customers and our colleagues. As well as encouraging good hand hygiene, standard ways of working have been revised to ensure that colleagues maintain appropriate social distancing at all times. All staff have been briefed about the social distancing measures jointly agreed by local management and the CWU. This has been supplemented with visible reminders such as posters and one-way floor markings”.
