I am living in India..I wanted an input as to how many of you living in India are keeping maids, cooks, babysitters, nannies etc..domestic helps inside the home... Last year for many months apartment complexes didn’t allow domestic helpers inside...and due to peak in Covid cases many people didn’t opt..but with everything unlocked and schools, offices, etc opening up now many people have resumed maids... 1. How safe is it to resume maids and cooks? 2. How many of you have called them back? 3. What safety measures are taken by the helpers while working in your home? 4. Are they willingly taking safety measures or unwillingly doing like only if you insist..or are their refusing to do hand wash, mask usage etc?is their awareness level good.. 5. What safety measure are you and family members taking when maid or other help is inside the home? 6. Should we wait till vaccinations happen or is it ok to employ domestic helps now? 7. How do people decide if they have senior citizens and/or babies should at home ( my friend has a new baby and in laws and she is coming back after delivery and needs help.) 8. I’ve heard of cases where people get Covid from domestic help and it scares me...is it due to improper mask usage..or is it because mask isn’t hundred percent effective... I’m living in India..it’s not a survey but only need suggestions , would be useful for those of us looking for domestic helps..a friend of mine is looking for a baby sitter as she has got a work from home job offer, she has a six month baby and needs a nanny, cook and maid... I too was under confusion as my previous maid is calling me many times and asking if she can join or not..
