What Houzz contributors are saying:
What are the main things my team can do to reduce the risk of transmission?The government advice for workers includes:Increase the frequency of hand-washing and surface-cleaning.Keep the activity time involved as short as possible.Use screens or barriers to separate people from each other.Use back-to-back or side-to-side working (rather than face-to-face) whenever possible.Reduce the number of people each person has contact with by using ‘fixed teams or partnering’ (so each person works with only a few others).Communicate with households prior to any visit and discuss how the work will be carried out to minimise risk for all parties.
