March 18, 2020 – At the Bermuda Housing Trust (BHT), we are constantly monitoring the risk that Covid-19 might represent to the 194 tenants living in our five properties located across Bermuda.
As a result, BHT Chairman the Hon. John Barritt JP, together with Deputy Chairman, Senator, The Hon. Vance Campbell JP, have agreed to a number of steps designed to protect BHT tenants.
“Our tenants are all over the age of over 65 which means they are in the highest risk group,” said Mr. Barritt. “Their health and wellbeing are a top priority. Consistent with guidance from the Bermuda Government and the Ministry of Health, we are suspending face-to-face meetings and encouraging social distancing.”
“We understand that social distancing will be difficult for our seniors, their family members and friends, but we urge everyone to exercise caution and care and to keep visiting to an absolute minimum please, practising, as we all should, appropriate hygiene as recommended by our Government.“
“We are also suspending all in-person office visits and asking family members to assist their loved ones who are BHT tenants in making rental payments online and in any way that works best for them.”
“Finally we urge our resident seniors and their families to continue to monitor closely and follow the directives of our Government as we all must work together to address this very serious pandemic, following, and being a part of the national plan of action to combat this virus successfully.”
“We stand ready to help in this regard and can be reached by email at [email protected] or by calling 292-1322.”
