I am a trades person, can I go into a customer’s house to do emergency work?9th April 2020
Your safety, and that of your customer is a main priority. The government position is that people should work from home if they can, but if they need to travel to work then they can continue to do so. Tradespeople can carry out work in people’s homes as long as they are well and have no symptoms, and can stand two metres apart from anyone else in the house.
Tradespeople shouldn’t carry out work in any households that are self-isolating or if an individual is classed as vulnerable and being protected, unless the work is to sort a problem which is a direct risk to the safety of the household, like emergency plumbing or repairs.
