Potential Hazards

Who is at Risk?

Actions to Control Risk

Anybody who is exhibiting symptoms or who has any reason to believe they may have come into contact with the virus up to 14 days prior to their booking must follow the Government instruction to self-isolate and follow NHS guidelines. Therefore, they should not arrive on site.

Anybody in one of the vulnerable groups identified by the Government should follow Government advice to self-isolate, they can contact their agent for help and advice with their booking. They should not arrive on site.

Contractors who are exhibiting symptoms or who have any reason to believe they may have come into contact with the virus within the previous 14 days should not come on site and they should follow NHS guidelines.

We will ask guests to follow guidelines on social distancing. Urrard Estate is a working estate, with two full-time employees. It has two self-catering units and 6 tenanted houses, and is set in approximately 15 acres of grass, meadow and woodland. It is relatively easy for guests to avoid contact with each other and residents. It is also possible to have a relaxing holiday without leaving the site.

Guests should arrange for groceries to be delivered to their cottage to avoid trips to the supermarket. This service may be available via Tilt Stores, Blair Atholl or House of Bruar, if supermarket slots are unavailable. Guests need to check with the store as the situation is changing daily.

Guests are advised that there may be severely restricted opportunities to eat out at this time and they should be prepared to fully self-cater.

Implement Changes to cleaning policy

We always strive to maintain extremely high standards of cleanliness at Urrard. Under normal conditions we also strive to maintain high standards of sustainability. We recognise that at this time some sustainable practices will need to be compromised. For example, washing and reusing cleaning cloths and using mostly natural cleaning products. We promise to resume these practices as soon as it is safe to do so however for the duration of the Corvid-19 outbreak we have decided to adopt the cleaning practices recommended by Public Health Scotland (PHS) for Cleaning in Non-Healthcare Settings:
https://www.hps.scot.nhs.uk/web-resources-container/covid-19-guidance-for-non-healthcare-settings/

As guests may not exhibit symptoms until after they return home, we will treat every clean as if the guests had potentially been infected. Therefore, we will:

To Protect our Cleaning Team we will:

There is a delay of at least 72hrs before used linen is collected by the laundry service providing an adequate buffer to protect their staff.

This policy will be reviewed monthly until the Government advises that the Covid-19 threat has passed.
