Equantiis Consulting Policy Statement: Novel coronavirus (COVID-19)
Equantiis Consulting takes the threat posed by the recent coronavirus outbreak seriously, but this must be tempered by understanding that panic or knee-jerk reactions will only accentuate harm.
Our full, comprehensive policy and contingency plan is available on request to our clients and suppliers. The approach we have adopted is based on fundamental guidance from the following sources:
Our outline approach as a business
We aim to maintain a business-as-usual position and to continue to meet our obligations and duty of care to our staff and clients while carefully observing what is likely to be a developing scenario.

Should we or one of our clients cancel or curtail any engagement or activity, then our standard contractual terms will be applied regarding any payments made or due.
We expect our staff to continue to fulfil their roles and deliver their obligations to our clients; any changes to this expectation will be informed and influenced by government advice and communicated both to staff and to our clients accordingly.
Face to face meetings and event delivery
From a face to face and event delivery perspective, Equantiis will take the following approach:
Our other business lines and services that are delivered remotely are unaffected by this policy.
