Work carried out in your homes, for example by tradespeople carrying out repairs and maintenance, can continue, provided that the tradesperson is well and has no coronavirus symptoms. Social distancing guidelines will be observed in accordance with Government advice.
It is important to ensure that Public Health England guidelines, including maintaining a 2-metre distance from any household occupants, are followed to ensure everyone’s safety.
No work will be carried out in any household which is isolating or where an individual is being shielded, unless it is to remedy a direct risk to the safety of the household, such as emergency plumbing or repairs, and where the tradesperson is willing to do so. Routine safety maintenance that ensures your home is safe to live in (e.g. gas servicing) will continue to be carried out.
No work will be carried out by a tradesperson who has coronavirus symptoms, however mild.
