HMO and the Coronavirus.

Try to remain in your own room as much as possible-

Self-isolating

In the case of any tenant that is self-isolating, you should create a rota system in communal areas. The individual that is self-isolating should be the last person to use facilities and cleans areas thoroughly. They must also avoid using the same towels etc as other tenants.

White and Maroon Rugs

Visitors and/or workers must be informed prior to arrival that a tenant is self-isolating. The same rules apply for any property inspections.
Ensure that your property has notices with relevant contact details and guidelines in communal areas.
