Brighthouse Residential Division: COVID-19 Response and Protocols
A message to our Team Members and Clients
As you know, the COVID-19 pandemic is bringing daily changes, challenges and stresses.
Our fist concern is the health, safety and well-being of our team members, as well as that of our client community and those we work with and serve. With this in mind, we want to maintain a safe environment and encourage and/or adopt practices protecting the health of team members and our clients. We also want to ensure the continuity of business operations throughout this pandemic.
We ask all team members and clients to cooperate in taking steps to reduce the transmission of communicable diseases in the workplace. As a company we are taking the following series of precautionary steps in response to this emerging situation:
- All Brighthouse associates are required to submit daily certifications prior to work confirming:
- Temperature check / normal temperature should not exceed 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit
- No fever within the past 48 hours

- Quality Managers will continue to meet with Cleaning Attendants outside of the home (or in non-common areas such as garages or covered porches) to conduct scope-of-work conversations; relevant recurrent training, distribute supplies, etc.
- Cleaning Attendants and Quality Managers are to maintain social distancing of six feet from each other and clients, as well as adopt a ‘no handshaking’ policy.
