Construction sector & garden centres to re-open on April 6

From April 6, the construction sector and garden centres will be allowed to re-open on Island.

It’s one of a number of restrictions eased by the Chief Minister Howard Quayle in today’s Covid-19 briefing.

He said regarding construction that is outdoors, this can resume as long as good practice on social distancing and face coverings is respected.

Some work that is indoors is already permitted - - Given the difference in risk between outdoors and indoors, measures are only going to change slightly.

From 6 April, officials have raised the limit for work on a vacant property to one person per room.

Again, Mr Quayle reiterated rules on social distancing and the use of face coverings must be respected to ensure a safe working environment.

In line with this, it was also announced garden centres can open from 6 April – with social distancing in place and face coverings strongly recommended.

He added Some retailers may insist on this.
