Judy: “If you are renting and the manager is bringing people in to do repairs, do the people that come in have to wear a mask?”
As always, landlords and apartment managers are allowed to access a unit to show it to prospective renters or for maintenance and repairs if they give their tenant 24-hours’ notice.
The province urges landlords and anyone else entering someone’s home to follow general COVID-19 precautions, including practising physical distancing and wearing a mask.
“It is our expectation that if a person asks a landlord, or anyone entering their home to wear a mask, they would do so,” a spokesperson from B.C.’s Ministry Municipal Affairs and Housing told NEWS 1130.
If a landlord or maintenance worker refuses to wear a mask when entering Judy’s home, she can file a dispute with the Residential Tenancy Board, the spokesperson said.
