Given the concerns about coronavirus (COVID-19) before you set off to complete any check, please follow the instructions below.
We strongly encourage you to be respectful of any staff requests (i.e. wearing a mask, sanitising your hands, track & trace), in order for a check to be carried out smoothly.
How to stay safe when doing Shepper checks:

Keep to social distancing rules;
Avoid touching your face, mouth and eyes;
Don’t go out if you feel unwell or if you’re vulnerable;
Plan and prepare;
Avoid public transport;
Always bring a mask with you and make sure to wear it when required/requested by staff.
We encourage you to follow these recommendations at all times for your safety and that of others:
Please do not complete checks if you are required to self isolate for any of the following reasons:
You have covid symptoms
You have had a positive Covid-19 test
NHS Test and Trace instruction
Household Covid exposure or symptoms
Any other reasons outlined in Govt guidance: https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus
You will not receive a strike if you cancel a check because of any of these reasons.
Wash your hands frequently. Wash your hands with liquid soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol to disinfect your hands. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Cover your cough or sneeze. Use a tissue to cover your cough or sneeze and throw the tissue in the trash, then wash your hands. If you don't have a tissue within reach, cough or sneeze into your elbow.
As always, if you feel uncomfortable picking up a job for safety reasons, you can choose not to accept or cancel the job if you have already accepted or started.
