COVID-19: Updated guidance for tradespeople

Share it

The Government have updated guidance to tradespeople as follows:

Work carried out in people’s homes

Work carried out in people’s homes, for example by tradespeople carrying out repairs and maintenance, can continue, provided that the tradesperson is well and has no symptoms.

Again, it will be important to ensure that Public Health England guidelines, including maintaining a two-metre distance from any household occupants, are followed to ensure everyone’s safety.
No work should 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. In such cases, Public Health England can provide advice to tradespeople and households.

No work should be carried out by a tradesperson who has coronavirus symptoms, however mild.

BiKBBI interpretation

Updated advice allows tradespeople to carry out “REPAIRS AND MAINTENANCE” in peoples homes, which is aligned with previous advice provided by BiKBBI and our interpretation of essential work.
