National Lockdown Update: November 5th – December 2nd, 2020

Following the government announcing a national lockdown on Thursday, November 5th 2020, DCBL would like to update our clients about how this affects our services to you.

At DCBL we take the safety of our staff and the public very seriously, as evidenced by the extensive measures we took before returning to enforcement visits once the restrictions placed on the Enforcement industry at the start of the first national lockdown were lifted on August 23rd of this year.

Since that time, we have continued to follow guidance from the Ministry of Justice, Public Health England the High Court Enforcement Officers Association to keep our agents and the public safe. This has included:

  • Providing appropriate PPE for our agents and insisting this is always used during enforcement visits
  • Maintaining social distancing throughout enforcement visits
  • Enhanced vulnerability checks, especially regarding exposure to those testing positive for COVID-19 or self-isolating
  • Additional training for both field agents and head office staff related to COVID-19 and increased vulnerability

How does this affect Enforcement visits in the current national lockdown?

Making the above measures part of our standard operating procedure has prepared us well and has allowed us to transition smoothly for this newest phase of national lockdown.

In line with guidance from the Ministry of Justice and the High Court Enforcement Officers Association, we are continuing to make enforcement visits whilst following the strictest of protective measures, and additionally not entering residential properties during this period.

If you have any questions about post lockdown enforcement, please call us on 0203 298 0203 or fill in our contact form.
