Keeping yourself and others safe is a priority these days more than ever before, so it’s important to listen to government advice and adhere to guidelines. During the latest national lockdown, tradespeople are still allowed to visit people’s homes in order to carry out repairs, maintenance etc. If there to work, they are also exempt from the rules on gatherings. This of course all changes if anybody concerned, or their household members experience Covid 19 symptoms. If anybody in your household is self isolating, tradespeople should not be allowed in, unless not carrying out the work poses a risk to your safety. This can include things like emergency gas, plumbing, water issues etc, and only if the worker is happy to do this.
Follow the Rules
Face to face contact should be extremely limited, and all should follow the latest government guidelines for England to make sure everyone is ok. Here are a few pointers :-
- Send a picture or video to the tradesperson indicating the problem and what needs fixing. Remember to include as many details about the issue as possible.
- Be patient if the tradesperson needs to reschedule your appointment due to developing symptoms such as loss of taste or smell, cough or high temperature.
- Let the tradesperson know if you or anyone in the home is vulnerable, elderly or pregnant.
- Keep the lines of communication open with your tradesperson, so you can all stay updated about anybody becoming ill.
- If anybody in your household is isolating or shielding, only emergency work should be undertaken.
