Information about COVID-19

3/06/2020

The European Water Jetting Institute, EWJI, is publishing this page aware of the serious impact (on health, families, society and economy) caused by the COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

The stage and the response to this pandemic are very diverse in Europe. Most European countries have advised specific protection measures, which also apply to our trade, without stopping strategic operations.

The picture in the water jetting sector is confusing and varies from country to country, and the impact of the pandemic is still unknown.

On this page you will find links to information provided by water jetting associations, relevant industry news, important policy information and other associated information. The page will be updated as more information becomes available.

Thank you all the health professionals

The European Water Jetting Institute would like to express the gratitude to the different health professionals -doctors, warders and all the professionals who work in hospitals and health centres- for the role they are playing in attending to all the patients and stopping the curve.

In the same way, we want to recognize the value and courage of all those professionals who are caring for the sick or needy people.

 

We are open

The offices of the EWJI Secretariat will remain open, as long as possible, during the normal hours, but with limited availability of personnel, since most of the Secretariat team will be working remotely.
