COVID-19 Protocol


Just like everyone in the world, I've had coronavirus on my mind quite a bit lately. If someone would have told me less then 3 months after starting a new business that a world-wide pandemic would halt society as we know it I may have had second thoughts about starting that business. But start it I did and quite frankly, I have truly enjoyed it. I am quite thankful and fortunate everyone in my household have remained symptom free.  I am confident the handywoman service will continue to be needed as the fact that people are in their homes even more now will probably increase the amount of repairs needed. Plus, homeowners may be less willing to live with broken things in the home since they now spend nearly 100% of their time there. I will only be providing services that are needed to ensure the safety, security, sanitation and essential operation of property and buildings. 

Protocols I have implemented  to protect myself, my client and my community will be:


  • Disinfect tools and equipment after each use
  • Disinfect interior and exterior of truck where handled
  • Regularly washing/sanitizing hands
  • Wear latex gloves when appropriate
  • Keep 6 foot personal distance
  • Install only items I purchase and provide
  • Utilize socially awkward salutations and departures (no handshake).

Contactless service

  • Provide electronic invoices and receipts
  • Accept electronic payments
  • Not provide business cards

Residential & Business Services

  •  Occupants will advise if:
    • Anyone recently traveled out of the country or been in contact with a person who has traveledout of the country in the last 14 days?
    • Is anyone under mandatory quarantine/mandatory self-isolation?
    • Does anyone in the premises have a cough, shortness of breath or a sore throat?
    • Has anyone recently had a fever or chills?
    • Has anyone in the household been in contact with any person who have displayed any signs sickness? 
  • If yes to any of the above, service will be postponed. 

Protocols and Services subject to change as required.

Thank you,

Tammy Watson
