iPosters continue to follow government advice including, but not restricted to social distancing. Advice from the government today made it clear that for our "online only" business to continue trading is justified and does not put our staff, partners or customers at any increased risk from COVID-19.
New measures in place for at least three weeks, tell Britons to only go to work if "absolutely necessary" - but Mr Hancock later said those who cannot work from home should go to work "to keep the country running". 24/03/2020
Although we face huge challenges and concern for our families, friends and livelihoods as everyone does, we remain open for business at the present time. Please help support your local & independent businesses.
At this time our our supply chain remains intact (Some products have been withdrawn from sale). Distribution within the UK is as normal on the whole with some delays unavoidable. We have not seen any issues with distribution to Europe, Australia or the USA although some delays are likely.
Please note the following information from Royal Mail.
“Public Health England (PHE) has advised that people receiving parcels are not at risk of contracting the coronavirus. From experience with other coronaviruses, we know that these types of viruses don’t survive long on objects, such as letters or parcels. This complements the highly publicised guidance from PHE for people to wash their hands more often than usual using soap and hot water.”

We have now put staff on a split shift system and erected a marquee for a temporary goods in/out area.
Take care, stay safe & well.
