Local businesses come together to help stop the spread of COVID-19

A joint community effort between J.C.F Cleaning & Allied Services, Motor Mall, Government of Jersey and the local Standard Chartered Bank Jersey Branch, is supporting Jersey’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The local business are collaborating to make sure there is capability to provide an intensified cleaning regime across the Island. It has been proven* that disinfecting public areas significantly hinders the spread of the COVID-19 infection. The vital project will involve trained J.C.F and Government staff who, using three vehicles fitted with latest equipment, will focus on high traffic areas.

Standard Chartered has donated two Disinfector™ Packages that include the essential sanitiser kit. These are being installed in two vehicles, one of which has been loaned free of charge to J.C.F. by Motor Mall.

The Government of Jersey is purchasing another Disinfector™ Package to fit onto a flat-bed vehicle and is overseeing the installation of all equipment.

Andrew Searle, General Manager Channel Islands, Motor Mall, said: “We are really pleased to be able to support this great initiative. As a local business we want to do all we can to help keep our island and our communities safe and well.”

Iain Mackenzie, Managing Director, J.C.F Cleaning & Allied Services, said: “By having vehicle mounted disinfector units available in Jersey, I hope that we can offer re-assurance to the community as they move around the Island or eventually re-emerge from lockdown restrictions.”

Martin Gautier, Head of Technical Support Services, Growth, Housing and Environment, Government of Jersey, said: “We have been pleased to assist J.C.F. Cleaning & Allied Services in having this disinfecting capability in the Island and being part of a joint effort to protect the local public.”

Henry Baye, Chief Executive Officer, Standard Chartered Bank Jersey, said: “In difficult times like these, there was no question about helping and working with our local community. It is at the heart of our promise to be Here for Good. We are very proud to make this donation and play our part in the fight against coronavirus; we’re all in this together.”
