Update in relation to the COVID-19 situation and the Lauriston Hotel
We know that many of you will be worried about coronavirus (COVID-19) and its potential impact, particularly given the wide-spread coverage in the media.
The Lauriston Hotel remains open. Of course, this is an evolving situation and we are continuing to follow Government and Public Health England (PHE) advice so we can monitor and plan accordingly.
Our top priority is keeping our customers and staff safe, and we have been monitoring this situation very closely. A team has been assembled to monitor the situation, take action to keep our community safe and follow advice from PHE.
We have also launched our Emergency Management Planning Process. This means that we are now committing more people and more resources to the development of plans and actions.
This website remains the best source for information for our customers on this issue.
