Farming and maintaining animal welfare are important and can continue if done in accordance with the social distancing guidelines wherever possible. 

If you provide services such as sheep shearing, sheep dipping and foot trimming to different farms it is not possible for workers to stay 2 metres apart at all times. 

You should communicate to all staff that they should wash their hands for 20 seconds or more and more frequently than normal, and always when arriving at or leaving a farm or premises or use hand sanitiser when they cannot wash their hands. They should be careful to avoid touching their faces at all times. 

You should arrange work so that you and colleagues can frequently clean and disinfect objects and surfaces that are touched regularly, using your standard cleaning products. This should be done both during the working day and when moving between premises.
