Following a discussion with Sharon Miller of Scottish Government, she has advised that Scottish Government has issued further guidance for Level 4 restrictions on construction work in homes. The guidance states:

 Tradespeople should only go into a house in a level 4 area to carry out or deliver essential work or services, for example:
to carry out utility (electricity, gas, water, telephone, broadband) safety checks, repairs, maintenance and installations

  • to carry out repairs and maintenance that would otherwise threaten the household’s health and safety
  • to deliver goods or shopping
  • to deliver, install or repair key household furniture and appliances such as washing machines, fridges and cookers
  • to support a home move, for example furniture removal

When working in someone’s house tradespeople should stay 2 metres apart from the people who live there, wear a face covering and follow good hand and respiratory hygiene.
