Garage staff are key workers, says Protyre
Protyre confirms that all its centres are operational at this point in time, adding that the company is monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic daily and will respond accordingly to government advice.
“Our number one priority is the health and wellbeing of all our staff, our customers and the general public in all decisions we are making,” states Protyre. “Our centres remain open and operational as usual. Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Monday 23rd March 2020 we are reviewing what that means for our operations. We will continue to seek advice and review the scale of our services daily.”
The tyre fast-fit and vehicle service network emphasises its commitment to supporting the Government and its position in response to the Coronavirus. “Our garage staff have already, in line with government guidance, been listed as key workers, allowing their children to still attend schools. Our frontline staff involved in tyre distribution, vehicle maintenance and repair, MOT testing and other repairs fulfil the criteria of key workers and are critical to keeping the road transport network moving.
“Many of our customers, both individuals and organisations, including emergency workers, teachers and those providing vital community services rely on us to ensure their vehicles are roadworthy and safe,” adds Protyre.
Centres have introduced additional hygiene measures as well as social distancing precautions. Contactless payment will be requested wherever possible. Mobile fitting services are available in certain areas.
