COVID-19 – CLARIFICATION

DO WE NEED TO USE PERSPEX SCREENS AT SERVICE DESKS?

AJPA first introduced the screens at Service desks before it was known that Covid-19 is mostly transmitted via aerosols.  While screens, as used in supermarkets and other venues, may not be terribly effective in controlling the flow of aerosol viruses, they do still serve the purpose of promoting social distancing.  Also in conjunction with the wearing of masks, screens provide a further physical disruption to the transmission of Covid-19, as well as other viruses such as those which cause colds and flu.  Therefore, the AJPA recommends the continued use of Perspex screens at service desks.

ARE JPs, WHO ARE OFFERING SERVICES FROM THEIR HOMES, REQUIRED TO BE VACCINATED?

AJPA cannot mandate this for JP services delivered in private homes.  However, at Service desks, where AJPA has a direct duty of care to both the JPs on duty and the public they are serving, vaccination is a requirement.
