We wanted to take a moment to update our customers on how Elphicks as a business is managing the outbreak of Covid-19 in the UK, and the steps we are taking to ensure the safety of our community, of employees and customers.
First and foremost, Elphicks is a major employer in Farnham, and our primary consideration is to ensure the health and wellbeing of both employees and customers. All the decisions we have made, and continue to make, are guided by Public Health England and government advice. This includes guidance on keeping employees and customers safe – such as increasing our cleaning and sanitation procedures across the store and support areas – as well as information available to employees on maintaining their own health.
Further to this, we have introduced working from home for employees who are able to do so.
However, we recognise that this is a fast-moving situation, and will continue to revisit these policies as required.
For customers, we know that there is increased anxiety over Covid-19 and have continued to introduce measures to go above and beyond our already high health and safety standards.
Elphicks is a local business that has been at the heart of Farnham for over 138 years. We will continue to serve our community of local customers for as long as we can.
