The Welsh Government has recently announced that Wales will operate a firebreak period of full national lockdown to stop the spread of COVID-19. The firebreak will run from 6pm on Friday 23rd October for 17 days until Monday 9th November.
Viscose will continue to operate through this firebreak as a critical supply business and we anticipate no disruption to output at this stage.
First and most importantly, we have implemented the appropriate actions to continue to provide our Employees, Customers and Suppliers with a safe environment. The necessary measures taken to prevent the further spread of Coronavirus will be implemented in line with UK Government, Department of Health Guidelines.
Viscose is working closely with our Suppliers to mitigate any disruption to the distribution side of our business and we remain in close contact with our global logistics network. This will ensure we are well positioned to work through these challenges and will communicate changes in lead times at the earliest opportunity.
