From the advice

If you are self-isolating...
If you are responsible for looking after bees, you should make alternative arrangements for their essential care if you, your family or your staff become ill or are unable to look after their welfare. If this is not possible, we would advise that you only attend to the basic needs and welfare of your bees where you can ensure you do not have contact with other people and you are able to follow all government advice on actions to minimise the risk of spread of COVID-19.

We are suggesting that local associations consider how they can support those shielding, in isolation or otherwise unable to attend their bees at this difficult time for all of us.
