    I agree that pest control is a vital service. The building sites which have been empty for serval weeks, and the surrounding areas, will likely require urgent pest control. People employed in pest control should be essential workers.

    This suggestion clearly demonstrates the lack of clarity in the guidance/regulations. There must be more clarity and better communication.

    Quotes from the website:

    “If you cannot work from home then you can still travel to work, provided you are not showing coronavirus symptoms and neither you nor any of your household are self-isolating. This is consistent with advice from the Chief Medical Officer.”

    “All individuals and businesses that are not being specifically required to close should consider a key set of questions– and at all times work on the precautionary basis”

    “ Work carried out in people’s homes, for example by tradespeople carrying out repairs and maintenance, can continue, provided that the tradesperson is well and is not showing coronavirus symptoms and neither they nor any of their household are self-isolating. Again, it will be important to ensure that a 2 metre distance from any household occupants is maintained for everyone’s safety.”
