Household visit ban does not apply to tradespeople

Tradespeople can continue to work in people’s homes under new restrictions announced by the Government last night.

Minister for Further and Higher Education Simon Harris said plumbers, electricians, builders, upholsterers and painters should take precautions when entering homes for work.

He said homeowners should properly ventilate their home, wear a face mask and keep their distance while work is being carried out.

The Minister also said business owners should show leadership and facilitate their employees working from home in a bid to stop the transmission of Covid-19.
