Implications of some of our residents contracting Covid 19

To all residents:

We have been in touch with Resident Services in LB Southwark, and we have asked for all Covid-19 policy updates to be shared with our residents via this website, and we have asked the following questions:

Please start to think about some of the implications of some of our residents contracting Covid 19, and having to self isolate. Living in communal tower blacks, there are certain communal ‘hotspots’ where all residents have to use, pass through, or come into contact with.

Door handles & entrances
Lift call buttons & lift interiors

Can we ensure that the cleaners pay special attention to these areas, and use some recognised disinfectant to clean these areas, and upgrade from the current mop & bucket of water cleaning schedule?

Have there been any strategic meetings within LB Southwark, to consider the effects of Covid-19 spreading within communal blocks?
Is there any guidance that you can share with us and our residents?
Is there any strategy to log cases by estate, or by block, and share this information?

We have also created a residents forum, where residents can communicate with each other, and offer help and support for those of us who have been recommended to self-isolate, which you can access here

This illustration, created at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), reveals ultrastructural morphology exhibited by coronaviruses. Note the spikes that adorn the outer surface of the virus, which impart the look of a corona surrounding the virion, when viewed electron microscopically. A novel coronavirus, named Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), was identified as the cause of an outbreak of respiratory illness first detected in Wuhan, China in 2019. The illness caused by this virus has been named coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
