The guidance also allows tradespeople to continue repairs and maintenance work, “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,” the advice says.

“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.”

However, it is good that the government has recognised that where there are contractual obligations that are unavoidable, people can move provided they follow the necessary health precautions.”
