DEAR SIR: In the letter published last week from a concerned housewife, mother and frontline worker, she asked surely that it is now appropriate to issue guidelines on contractor workers coming into homes and the risk of infection? The letter writer is entirely correct in that it is not appropriate for farm contractors and their employees to enter the homes of farmer clients for meals or for any other reason, during these unprecedented times.

At FCI, we issued clear guidelines which included not entering clients’ homes for food, to almost 1,000 contractors on our mailing list in March of this year, as well as on our social media channels and our text messaging service.
