Keeping Yourself Safe


Steps to - Stay clean  Stay apart   Stay well

It is important that farmers and crofters take infection control seriously-think of this like Foot and Mouth disease-for humans! Coronavirus affects rural areas the same as it affects urban ones-farmers and crofters are not immune!


Protect your business, and your family by:

  • Self-isolating if you show symptoms-particularly if you are over 70
  • Staying 2 metres apart from all people who are from outwith the house you live in
  • Washing your hands with hot soapy water frequently, particularly before eating
  • Arranging designated drop off points for all on farm/croft deliveries
  • Reducing all other on-farm/croft meetings, including those with contractors, to the minimum 
  • Not sharing machinery with other farms
  • Wearing a mouth covering of cloth or another textile when in an enclosed area where social distancing from other members of the public is difficult, such as supermarkets or public transport.

Help others in the farming community by respecting the above and:

  • Call your farming/crofting neighbours check in on them, particularly if they are elderly or vulnerable
  • If you are needed to help a neighbour, remember the advice above about keeping yourself safe
