COVID-19: Other people's homes

Guidance for people working in, visiting or delivering to other people's homes.

This is a complex environment due to the varied employment relationships, including the self-employed, employers and agencies.

The guidance available applies to those working in, visiting or delivering to home environments. These include, but are not limited to, people working in the following areas:

  • in home workers - such as repair services, fitters, meter readers, plumbers, cleaners, cooks and surveyors (this is not an exhaustive list)
  • to home services - such as delivery drivers momentarily at the door

This guidance does not directly apply to nannies who spend all their time with one household, or to their employers.
