Monday 19th July 2021

The Government has issued direction that COVID-19 restrictions in England will be lifted from today (19th of July 2021). Devolved Administrations are also easing restrictions. 

The safety of families living in Service Family Accommodation (SFA) and Substitute Service Family Accommodation (SSFA) remains our top priority and with rates of COVID-19 continuing to rise throughout the UK, we want to reassure families that services to your homes will continue to be delivered safely and DIO and our Industry Partners will continue to maintain COVID-19 safe working practices including:

  • Contractors will continue to call in advance of a visit to SFA/SSFA to ensure occupants are not self-isolating
  • All operatives will wear a face covering whilst working in SFA/SSFA
  • Contractors will continue to sanitise their hands and equipment before entering an SFA/SSFA
  • Social distancing protocols will continue to apply

For more guidance on how DIO will continue to ensure COVID-19 safe working practices in your homes please refer to guidance on GOV.UK
