From the whole staff team, we hope that you and your family are keeping well and healthy during these difficult times.
WHAT HAPPENS IF THERE’S A CASE IN YOUR COURT?
If you live in one of our sheltered or retirement courts, you might be wondering what happens if there’s a confirmed case of COVID-19 where you live.
In the event of a positive case, a member of Public Health Scotland’s contact tracing team should be in touch with you if you had been in close contact with the affected resident. If you had recently been in contact with the affected resident, you would have to self-isolate for 14 days. If you started to show symptoms, then you would have to arrange a COVID-19 test.
As COVID-19 is a public health emergency, Cairn, as a landlord, are not in a position to offer specific guidance to individual tenants. However, as soon as we are aware of a positive case in your court, we would contact Public Health Scotland to make sure that we are following their recommended guidance.
We would only be in touch with you if any of our services have changed as a result of the positive case. For example, if the communal lounge had to close, or we had to limit routine repairs.
As ever, please make sure you continue to follow Scottish Government guidance of social distancing, wearing face coverings while in communal spaces and washing your hands regularly.
TEST AND PROTECT APP
If you haven’t already downloaded this app then make sure you take a minute to do so. The app has been designed to reduce the spread of coronavirus and avoid further lockdowns. The more people who use it, the better it will work.
