Updated UK government Coronavirus advice for tradespeople working in people's homes (eg asbestos surveyors)

This is the latest guidance for tradespeople, issued this morning (26 March, 2020):

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/further-businesses-and-premises-to-close/further-businesses-and-premises-to-close-guidance

The key paragraph is:


So it appears that asbestos surveying, for example, is permissible at least for now - as long as social distancing is possible and adhered to, and that neither the surveyor nor the occupant are showing signs of symptoms or are self-isolating.

Hope that helps in these difficult times.
