Update to Clients – COVID-19
National Lockdown 4th JANUARY 2021
As you are no doubt aware, the Government have announced a new national lockdown from midnight tonight. The advice for cleaners remains the same and is outlined on the National Lockdown Guidance page 13. See here.
“Where it is necessary for you to work in other people’s homes – for example, for nannies, cleaners, or tradespeople – you can do so. Otherwise, you should avoid meeting for work in a private home or garden, where COVID-19 Secure measures may not be in place”
However, the ultimate decision about working through this time remains with the Client and the Housekeeper and both must adhere strictly to the following guidelines.
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me on 01494 520420 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
For your peace of mind, we have outlined below, the advice issued to the Housekeepers, but there a few of points we would like to highlight:
- All our Housekeepers have been provided with disposable gloves and will wear masks on arrival.
- We have told Housekeepers that even if they are well, they must not work if anyone in their house is ill or is displaying any of the symptoms. We are also reliant on Clients informing the Housekeeper if anyone in their household is displaying any symptoms.
- It is really important that Housekeepers have access to appropriate cleaning materials at this time and we would ideally like them to be using a suitable anti-bacterial surface cleaner to ensure surfaces are thoroughly clean.
- If a Housekeeper is using a new product please ensure that they are fully aware of what surfaces you are happy for it to be used on.
