Cleaners and tier 4

Postby muddyboots » Sat Dec 19, 2020 11:37 pm

I’ve just checked and cleaners are allowed to work in tier 4. I wonder however given the news of how much more contagious the latest strain is wether I should cancel the last clean before Christmas at least.
Also, should they wear face masks? She’ll probably hate me if I ask her ..
What do others do ?
Thanks!

Our cleaner, at her own initiative, has been wearing a mask since all this started.  And if you do cancel your cleaner, I think you should keep paying, unless you really can't.

Shame about everything else!

How strange is that how you can have your cleaner in your house but can't have one member of your family on Christmas day any explanations !!!

Yes, I’ve paid her throughout lockdowns/cancellations
Not about money, I’m asking regarding risk.

Last thing I want is a Covid Xmas gift ...

If a member of your FAMILY is not allowed in your house at any time that's including a very special day like Christmas day then how can a cleaner be allowed in or are cleaners exempt rule for one and not the other maybe !!

It's obviously lower risk if your cleaner wears a mask (which personally I think you would be entirely within your rights to require) rather than not wearing one, and lower still if s/he doesn't come at all.

It would be a sensible idea if you would ask your Cleaner to not come into your house over the next 2 weeks and hopefully you will be paying her wages too.
