We appreciate that you’ve received a number of communications, relating to COVID-19 health and safety measures.

This page outlines the process we intend to follow in the event of any of several different scenarios should they occur at an Editions site.


Partner employees on-site:

All chefs will be asked to complete a daily health questionnaire (see below)

  • UK, If any of the questions are answered as “yes”, the chef should be asked to return home and self-isolate for a period of 7 or 14 days, as per the public health advice - https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/
  • UAE, If any of the questions are answered as “yes”, the chef will be asked to return home and self-isolate for a period of 14 days, as per the public health advice.
  • AUS, If any of the questions are answered as “yes”, the chef will be asked to return home and follow the testing and self-isolation guidelines issued by the Department of Health. 

A template email will be sent to you confirming the incident and the required actions - detailing also the safe to return to work policy and the number of days to isolate.


If a chef reports any symptoms to the site manager via telephone or email prior to coming on-site: 

  • On their return, they should be asked to complete a health questionnaire (body temperature may also be taken).
  • A template email will be sent to you confirming the incident and the required actions from them - and specifically detailing the safe to return to work policy as well as the number of days to isolate etc.

  • They should be asked to remain at home and self-isolate for a period of 7 days before returning to work.

If a chef reports that someone in their household suffers from coronavirus symptoms prior to coming to the site or while on site:

AUS

  • we ask that they remain at home and follow the testing and self-isolation guidelines issued by the Department of Health s before returning to work. 

If a chef reports that they have coronavirus symptoms during a shift:

  • The chef should be asked to leave the site, return home and self-isolate for 7 days.
  • All chefs working in that kitchen will be asked to return home immediately and self-isolate for 7 days and the kitchen will be closed. 
  • The kitchen will have to be deep cleaned and sanitised before reopening.

Site closure

We may decide to close down the entire site however we will communicate this with partners immediately. Editions will clean/sanitise the site. 

Once ready for trading all partners would be informed and we could commence trade again. 

Guidelines state that only if in the presence of someone displaying symptoms for 15 minutes or more and within 2 metres distance would also have to be isolated. This means that depending on where and for how long they have been while on shift would determine if anyone else present on site will need to self isolate.

Your responsibility as a partner

Partners will be required to inform the site management team if any chef or team member reports any sickness or symptoms of COVID-19 (new persistent cough or high temperature), or if they live with someone who displays symptoms of Covid 19. 


UK 

UAE

  • In this case, they will be asked to remain at home for a period of 7 or 14 days as per public health guidance. 
  • Please see the following link for the Dubai Health Authority's most up to date advice, and share it with each of your teams.

AUS

In the event that any chef fails or refuses to comply with the Editions Policy, we will inform you with immediate effect - requiring that you contact the chef and instruct the chef to remove themselves from the site immediately. 

We will pause the tablet from trading while the chef is removed and until the kitchen is sanitised

You will need to allocate new staff to sanitise the kitchen before opening again.  

Deliveroo on-site Editions employees 

Editions site teams are required to follow all of the above requirements and report any concerns and symptoms to their supervisors.

If the site manager reports symptoms via email or telephone, the operations team will try to arrange for a cover as soon as possible.
