COVID Testing : Is it safe to hire a Maid or Nanny from Housekeeping Co ?
New or Returning Candidates:
If required as per the medical advice of the Nursing staff, we send candidates for COVID testing if they have been in contact with COVID positive, or any suspected cases.
Throughout the Candidate placement, if the family is going for COVID vaccination, we suggest you encourage your worker to be included at the same time.
Housekeeping Co is authorized and licensed by the Ministry Of Human Resources to ensure that all candidates are processed with Employment Visa, Medical Insurance and Emirates Identity Cards before placement with a family. (due to certain delays in the processing of EID cards, candidates maybe placed with families before their card arrives…however be rest assured they are already in the system and linked with medical insurance.
All new candidates are required to be placed into quarantine accommodation prior to placement.
They are looked after by Nursing staff and monitored several times a day at our residential training accommodation.
There is separate quarantine accommodation for new onboarding or any returning candidates.
