I'd read something about this in the news that said it was okay for window cleaners to continue working. All the window cleaners must have read it, mine came yesterday too!

Correct me if I am wrong, but I was under the impression that only essential workers could go to work, i.e. NHS, transport, Post offices and shops selling food etc.

I was astonished to see my window cleaner cleaning my windows just now.  :o  Hardly an essential occupation is it  ???

What do you think?

If people can work safely whilst earning a crust and keeping the economy afloat, I think they should do so. I agree though - the guidance is far from clear.

I've had notification from my window cleaner, who I thought initially was self-employed but I now find is a contractor.  He states that he will no longer be knocking on the door for payment, and if he had to enter the house to gain access to the rear of the property then he would only be cleaning the front windows.  Payment will be by whatever method we have agreed.

My gardener has already been to cut the lawn, and we have also agreed on a payment method.

I agree the guidance is unclear, maybe because it is difficult to cover every individual circumstance, but the message is clear, social distancing, don’t come within 2 metres of anyone who is not living with you.

Added, everyone was social distancing in Tesco, queueing, one in one out etc, then when they come out with the trolley they are chatting away merrily in the car park.

This thread says I started it, which I didn't, I actually posted on the previous one. Having said that I know that once you get to page 20 you are supposed to start a new thread. Please can someone who knows how to do that, start the new one and close this one. Thanks .
