Our response to Coronavirus

11th March 2020

At Aspect our principal concern is for the welfare of our clients, our staff and the members of the public who attend market research events at our venues. Since the announcement of the first global cases of Coronavirus we have been carefully listening to the advice given by the World Health Organisation, the UK Government and their Chief Medical Advisors.

Based on the current threat assessment posed by the virus within the UK the advice has been to contain the spread by isolating those affected and reinforcing basic principles of hygiene in all public spaces.

At Aspect we have acted upon this advice by asking anyone who enters our building to wash their hands upon arrival. We have also provided liquid hand sanitisers throughout our venues. In addition to this, we are also speaking to clients, and anyone who is recruiting participants into Aspect, to ensure that participants who have either personally travelled to any of the countries affected by the virus, or have been in contact with someone who has, to be excluded from the research and advised to self-isolate. We will also be advising anyone who participates in research at Aspect how they can minimise risks through social distancing - not shaking hands and maintaining an approximate distance of 1 metre.

This is unfortunately not something which will be easily resolved in the immediate future and not something which can be solved by any person alone. We are committed to maintaining continual communication about this issue and will be working with all of our partners within the research community to ensure that, wherever possible, we are mitigating the risks by following the advice of experts.

In the event that the advice from the government or the health authorities changes we will be ready with contingency plans to help you continue your research with the minimum disruption.

More information on for the public and people working within market research can be found on the MRS website here.
