Coronavirus: Hinkley Point C concerns remain despite reduced workforce. Unions working with EDF and contractors to maintain social distancing among 2,000 workers. Concerns have continued to be raised about the risk of coronavirus spreading among workers at the Hinkley Point construction site despite a reduction in the workforce. Even with additional measures in place, some people have again contacted Somerset Live over the last two days to air concerns, fearing the new measures do not go far enough. A person who told us they worked at the site said pictures showed workers not observing social distancing measures. A picture of a bus queue was sent to Somerset Live and other images have been posted on social media. In an e-mail, they wrote: “As you can clearly see no social distancing is being done on the job. “It’s now Thursday and the lock down was put in place on Monday and they are still putting all these workers’ lives at risk.” Concerns were also raised about temperature checks, but EDF has stressed that it is carrying out thorough checks.
