Masks in units with contractors – we are asking tenants to wear a face covering in their unit when a contractor is present. We have also asked contractors to wear masks while they are on CHC property.
Closure of Common Sitting Areas – Common sitting areas on CHC properties will remain closed. Do not congregate in common spaces during the current restrictions.
Resource Rooms and Tenant Programs – View Info on Partner Programming for details on what is available at the property level. Refer to our Community Supports page for local resources, or reach out to your Tenant Liaison if you are in need of support.
Increased Janitorial at high density properties – Calgary Housing Company is continuing increased janitorial services at our high density properties.
Tenant Self-Reporting – Alberta Health Services does not notify CHC of positive cases on our properties, so self-reporting any positive cases in your home is an important tool to support the effort to keep our communities safe. If you have a positive case of COVID-19 in your home, please contact your Property Manager. This will help us monitor and track active and recovered COVID-19 cases on our properties and help us understand risk level. Read more about how CHC Monitors for COVID-19.
