Vesteda announces new restrictions to prevent further spread of coronavirus
On 14 December, the Dutch government announced strict lockdown measures to curb the spread of coronavirus. The Prime Minister, Mark Rutte, also requested that people drastically reduce their number of social contacts. On this basis, Vesteda has decided to minimize the number of possible contacts between tenants, employees, and suppliers until at least 19 January 2021.
With the Dutch government banning all indoor sports until 19 January 2021 at the earliest, Vesteda has closed swimming pools, saunas, and gyms in its residential complexes until this date. Minor repairs will be postponed where possible, and our suppliers will consult with tenants to find a satisfactory solution for urgent repairs. Inspections and viewings will also be organized according to a COVID-compliant work protocol.
Vesteda employees will work from home again until 19 January 2021 unless there is an urgent need to be at the office. External visitors are not allowed at our office locations, and office staff will not visit external contacts. Different rules apply to our field staff according to an amended work protocol. Our suppliers have also been informed of our measures and agreements. Unfortunately, the above measures can have an impact on the speed of our service. We ask our tenants for their understanding.
Tenants’ own responsibility
At the same time, we ask our tenants to assume responsibility themselves, such as keeping sufficient distance, only using a lift with one person or one household, and regularly washing your hands and cleaning door handles.
Financial difficulties due to the coronavirus pandemic
Tenants who are at risk of financial difficulties due to the strict lockdown measures can contact Vesteda to find an individual solution at firstname.lastname@example.org.
