Writing Covid-19 Safety Protocols


"Thank you Claire and Ruth for the most incredible job you have done in writing our Covid-19 Safety Protocols.

I was in a bit of a panic at the time we were all told that we were going from Level 4 down to Level 3. I realised as Homestagers, we were able to go back to work. However I had no idea what we needed or how to go about it. You were both very reassuring, thorough and totally professional, this was reflected in the work you produced for us. This gave me the confidence to get the appropriate PPE for my staff and guidelines as to how we were to operate.

We are all very happy to be back at work, the Real Estate agents and vendors that we work with have been totally impressed with our level of dedication to the Safety Protocols and Contact Tracing. Thank you again, your fabulous writing work has allowed us to be a leader not a follower in our field."

Their need

Jacinda announced the move from Level 4 Alert to Level 3. Anthea Baker called us immediately, as she needed help in deciding if Homebase, a home staging company, would be able to operate under Level 3 and if so, what protocols would she need to implement.

Our solution

We quickly wrote protocols including:

  • an introduction to Covid-19, the symptoms, how it is spread, and how to protect yourself and others
  • Hygiene and physical distancing relevant to managing a homestaging event
  • Traveling to and from sites and delivering goods
  • Cleaning goods and client sites.

We also provided a short statement to inform real estate agents and homeowners that for Alert Level 3:

  • Homestaging was for unoccupied properties only
  • Homebase operating procedures were compliant with government guidelines.


Anthea Baker, the owner was able to train her staff, inform and assure customers and her company, Homebase, operated again from day 1, Alert Level 3.
