The following guidance is taken from the government’s coronavirus recovery strategy. Please note that the restrictions in this phase will be lifted no earlier than Monday 1 June 2020, and possibly later if the government’s tests for further relaxation of restrictions have not been met.
Housing associations providing supported and sheltered housing schemes may wish to start allowing specified friends of family members from one other household only to visit residents who are not in the extremely vulnerable category. There may be services that organisations have been performing for their residents which can be carried out by a friend or family member instead.
Housing associations staff in roles which allow them to work remotely may have been juggling work with childcare and home-schooling during the lockdown period. These staff may be able to return their children to school from June, allowing them to work more easily.
