SCA (NSW) and various strata managers have published guidelines on whether cleaning contractors and tradies can work in strata buildings under the latest public health order that commenced on 19 July 2021.
The true position is as follows:
- Cleaners and tradies can only do work in a residential strata building in the Greater Sydney Area:
- If the work is urgently required; and
- The work is required to ensure the health, safety or security of building or its residents (e.g. urgent waste disposal); or
- The work is required because of an emergency (e.g. a burst pipe, flooding event or fire).
This does not allow routine cleaning and maintenance to be performed by cleaning contractors and tradies in a residential strata building in Sydney.
