The Health Protection (Coronavirus) Regulations 2020

On the 26th March 2020, Public Health England released a detailed memorandum outline exactly what is expected of businesses and the public during this epidemic; and most importantly how business can still operate, and how to operate safely.

For full details visit; The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) Regulations 2020

Public Health England identify a vulnerable person as the following;

  • (i)any person aged 70 or older;
  • (ii)any person under 70 who has an underlying health condition, including but not limited to, the conditions listed in Schedule 1;
  • (iii)any person who is pregnant.

During the course of the Restrictions on Movement, they advise;

  • (l)to move house where reasonably necessary;

And with Restrictions on Gatherings, the advice is;

  • (b)where the gathering is essential for work purposes,
  • (d)where reasonably necessary—
  • (i)to facilitate a house move,

 

With this in mind, we here at Mr Shifter are taking the following steps and precautions during this period;

 

  • Only Essential Moves will be undertaken. An essential move is identified as a move that cannot be avoided or delayed, due to contractual, financial or social constraints.
  • Wherever possible, staff and clients should observe the restrictions on gatherings and social distancing guidelines.
  • Where it is not possible, all steps must be taken to minimise the duration of such gatherings and distances.
  • If you are identified as a person(s) that is vulnerable, please take any and all steps to remove yourself from the premises during collection and delivery, if possible, please have a family member or friend on hand to oversee your move whilst you are isolating to protect yourself and your health.
