    Hiring tradesman during coronavirus


    What is happening at the moment with regards to installation work due to the coronavirus? Will we need to wear masks when interacting with the contractors? Will we need to stay away while they work for the sake of social distancing? Can we offer them food, a cup of tea, etc.? It’d just be good to know in advance these sorts of details as it’s still a lot to get used to how different things are at the moment. Thanks for your time!

    "Working distance is the key. Talking with clients at a distance. Food can be offered with great respect but trades should have there own food."

    "I personally am trying to take as many precautions as possible not only for me and my family but the customers and theirs as well.
    I wear foot sole protectors masks gloves etc where I possibly can and advise customers to stay out of rooms I may be working in where ever possible I try to touch as little of any property as is practically possible. I do not accept tea, biscuits, cakes etc (wish I could always nice to receive!) I eat outside in the van and clean everything down with wipes etc after I’ve finished. After that, I guess there not much else I can do."

    "Tradesmen should always carry face masks at the moment anyway, so if anyone isn’t sure entirely about these type of situations then it’s probably best just to request that the tradesmen wear one."
