At Maria House Keeping our top priority is the safety of the professionals and customers on our platform. With COVID-19 (Coronavirus) cases on the rise, we want to assure you that we are rapidly responding to the outbreak. That means being transparent with you about what steps we are taking during this difficult time. We are providing compensation to any professionals who are placed under quarantine or are diagnosed with COVID-19. We are following “shelter in place” orders across the country. The services that are available through the Maria House Keeping platform fall under an exemption to these orders, which allows residents to leave their home to perform business such as plumbing, electrical work, cleaning, and other services that are necessary to maintain the safety, sanitation, and essential operation of residences. That’s why Maria House Keeping services continue to be available in these areas. We are providing guidance to professionals regarding safety precautions, such as recommending that they use personal protective equipment at bookings. We've also asked any pros who feel sick to stay home and rest, without worrying about being charged cancellation fees. We are waiving cancellation fees for any customers and professionals who (1) have been diagnosed with COVID-19, (2) feel sick on the day of a scheduled booking, (3) are in a mandatory quarantine or are self quarantining, or (4) do not feel safe having a booking because of the COVID-19 outbreak. If you would like to skip or reschedule a booking please use the form below to let us know. We recommend that you also review the CDC's guidelines for reducing the spread of COVID-19. These include: Washing hands frequently and vigorously for 20 seconds to prevent the spread of germs; Avoiding touching of the eyes, nose and mouth; Cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe; and Social distancing. We also ask that all customers proactively follow the CDC’s guidelines to reduce the spread of the Coronavirus during your Maria House Keeping bookings. Other recommendations for customers include: Stay in a room separate from the one your pro is cleaning. This will (1) allow the professional to clean thoroughly and without interruption and (2) maintain the 6 foot person- to- person distance currently recommended by the CDC. Cancel or reschedule booking if you feel sick or are concerned about the wellbeing of those living in your home or your pro. As always, we’re here for you, your home, and the professionals who use our platform. Please use the form below to contact us if you have any additional questions or concerns. Stay safe and thank you for being a valued customer of the Maria House Keeping community.
