Relatives asked not to visit housing services for people with disabilities

Due to the worsening COVID-19 situation, housing units for people with disabilities can only be visited for strictly necessary reasons. The request not to visit is valid from 6 January 2022 until further notice.

If a visit is necessary, the maximum number of visitors is two. Visits should be kept short.

We kindly ask you to arrange any visit to our housing unit in advance with our staff. If you come to visit, you must not have COVID-19, be quarantined or have even the slightest respiratory symptoms.

Visits are possible indoors in the resident’s room or in another well-defined space. Visitors must wear a face mask and ensure good hand hygiene and adequate safety distances.

You can also visit with your relative/friend in the unit’s yard or in the form of other outdoor activities. You can talk also to your relative/friend electronically or by phone, for example. The staff of the housing unit are happy to help arrange an outdoor meeting or a conversation.

The purpose of the restrictions is to protect the residents and staff from COVID-19 infection. We will let you know when the situation changes. We apologise for the situation.
