As you may have heard in the news, the COVID-19 case rates across our region and the UK remain very highand this is expected to continue in the short term. The Government has suggested the impact of this could beworkforce absences of up to 25% as a worst case scenario.
We are offering a full repairs service to customers but we are experiencing higher than usual sickness absences among colleagues and have a large number of our frontline colleagues needing to self-isolate. It may therefore take us a little longer to get to you. Our teams are doing their best in difficult circumstances, so we would ask you to please be patient and bear with us. We’re sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause and we’ll continue to try and deliver the best possible service we can.
As it has been throughout the pandemic, the health and safety of our customers and colleagues continues to be our main priority and we continue to take extensive measures to ensure this. When we do come into your home for any reason, we have robust risk assessments and safe methods of work in place in order to protect everyone, but we do rely on your cooperation to enable this to work effectively.
If our colleagues are working in your home, please allow them to work alone safely, and ideally in a separate room to anyone else in the property. We also ask that you wear a face covering during this time (unless you have a medical reason not to wear one), our colleagues will too.
Ventilation is also very important too. Letting fresh air into indoor spaces can help remove air that contains virus particles and prevent the spread of COVID-19. Please ventilate your home when you have any visitors from outside your household in your home, this includes our colleagues.
As always, our teams are here to help you so please get in touch. Remember, if you do have a repair, the fastest way to book an appointment with the repairs team is by using theMyKarbon customer portal.
Please let us know if you need to reschedule an appointment because you or anyone in your household is self-isolating or have had a confirmed positive COVID-19 test result. We can then reallocate this appointment to another customer.
We will update you again if and when things change. Thank you for your ongoing support and understanding, we really appreciate you working with us to help us deal with the ongoing challenges of the pandemic.
