Under the current Covid Secure Regs staff dealing with faults cannot work the same way as they use to, as soon as they need to work within 2 metres of each other they need to carry out a risk assessment and agree how they are going to do the task. 

And for those jobs that can't be done while keeping 2 m apart, here's what you do...

Yes and it working well on site, but I know from actual experience it does add time to tasks; however this is improving as the maintenance teams have got accustomed to the additional measures.

Some teams have been affected by normal team members having to self isolated due to their or members of their house hold needing to shield.

Yep .... and diverted too.

14:12 Paignton to London Paddington due 17:09
14:12 Paignton to London Paddington due 17:09 will be diverted between Westbury and Reading.
It will be delayed due to the diversion and is expected to be 34 minutes late.
This is due to a fault with the signalling system.

There she goes ...
