COVID-19 update

As we learn to live with COVID-19, we want to let you know the guidelines we are following to help us all manage the current risk.

Before we visit your home to carry out repairs or safety inspections, we will get in touch to ask you our COVID screening questions. It’s essential that you tell us if anyone in your home has COVID symptoms, has had a positive test or is self-isolating.

The wearing of face coverings is now a personal choice, except for when in a retail setting, including our Hubs. If you would like a WDH employee to wear a face mask, when visiting your home, please let us know in advance. Equally, we ask that you respect any request from our employees or our partners for you to wear a face mask, when they visit.

We are maintaining regular enhanced cleaning measures in all our WDH buildings including our Wakefield and Pontefract Hubs and independent living schemes. When you visit, we have hand sanitiser available for use.

We ask everyone to continue to respect the personal space of others.
