The British Institute of Kitchens, Bedrooms and Bathroom Installation (BiKBBI) has confirmed “tradespeople will be able to continuing delivering services into other people’s homes”.
However, tradespeople will need to observe COVID Risk Assessments and guidance on working in other people’s homes.
The Circuit Breaker lockdown will take place from Friday, October 23 at 6pm until Monday, November 9 at 12.01am.
BiKBBI reports work “can continue as long as it is managed in a safe way and both the worker and household members are well and have no symptoms of Coronavirus”.

The BiKBBI also recommends that no work should be carried out in any household where someone is isolating, unless to repair a fault which poses a direct risk to people’s safety.
