COVID-19 safety update – July 30

July 30, 2020

Link Housing is taking steps to remain vigilant and keep our staff, tenants, clients and the community safe during this pandemic.

As a registered COVID Safe business, we take the health and well-being of our tenants and staff very seriously and are closely monitoring the NSW Health advice and following government guidelines.

Please see our most recent update: COVID-19 safety update – August 5

While our offices remain open, we encourage you to contact us via phone, email or through our website for help. If you answer yes to any of the following questions, please don’t visit our offices without contacting us first: — Do you have confirmed or suspected COVID-19 (Coronavirus)?
— Do you or anyone in your household have flu-like symptoms?
— Have you been asked to self-isolate?
— Have you returned from overseas in the last 14 days? — Have you travelled interstate in the last 14 days?
— Have you been in close contact with someone who may have been exposed to COVID-19 (Coronavirus)?

If you need to visit one of our offices, please note an appointment is required and a staff member will ask the questions above.

At our offices we are enforcing social distancing guidelines and conducting health checks. Please cooperate with Link Housing staff members on duty.

Tenant Home Visits and Repairs

Link Housing has now resumed our regular tenant home visits which were paused from late March to mid-July.

We continue to take strict safety precautions, following Government health guidelines, and giving tenants the right to defer a visit from their Housing Manager if they prefer.

We are mindful that some of our clients are vulnerable and have health issues. Our Housing Managers therefore check with each and every tenant before confirming a Home Visit.

As part of the ‘check before confirming a Home Visit’, staff will ask a series of questions to determine any risk factors and your comfort level with a visit. At this time, you can also request that staff wear masks or other Personal protective equipment (PPE) when they visit. Our staff are provided with adequate PPE for single use.

Link Housing has followed similarly strict protocols in prioritising ongoing repairs and maintenance services for our tenants over the past few months. We will continue to do so. Where urgent repairs are required, we will work with tenants to ensure their safety.

If you are a Link Housing tenant and have any concerns about the above, please contact us on 9412 5111 or email enquiries@linkhousing.org.au.
