Welsh Government Update Fire Lockdown Rules

In the past week the welsh government announced a fire lockdown to try and combat the growing infection rate of Covid-19 in the country. Something like this could happen in England if the numbers continue to rise. In the first announcement, it was said that working in people’s homes for installers and construction professionals was not allowed which left many people worrying how they would cope not being able to trade.

However, they swiftly issued new information which has soothed people’s fears for the time being. See the information below –

“Work carried out in people’s homes, for example by tradespeople, can continue as long as it is managed in a safe way and both the worker and household members are well and have no symptoms of coronavirus. However, we recommend that people consider whether the work can be safely deferred until after this short lockdown.

Like other businesses, people working in someone else’s home must take all reasonable measures to ensure to mitigate the risk of coronavirus spreading when working in other people’s households. Please see the guidance on reasonable measures and on working in other people’s homes for more information.

It is also recommended that no work should be carried out in any household where someone is isolating, unless it is to repair a fault which poses a direct risk to people’s safety – for example, emergency plumbing, or carry out an adaptation to allow that household to remain in their property. If attendance is unavoidable (because of an urgent or emergency situation), additional precautions should be taken to keep workers and householders completely separate from each other.  In these cases, Public Health Wales can provide advice to tradespeople and households. But no work should be carried out by a tradesperson who has coronavirus symptoms, however mild.”

As mentioned this is only currently in wales but if the numbers continue to rise something similar could be rolled out in England and therefore we must prepare adequately to ensure our team and you as our clients are safe. If something like this is rolled out we will be the first to update you and ensure that everyone is safe before we carry out the work required on your property.

We are currently taking all the safety measures needed to avoid virus transmission and will continue to do so for as long as at it takes as safety is our number 1 priority in these troubled times.

Stay safe and stay in touch.

From the team at Countrywide Windows.
