Neither Public Health England nor the Department of Health have issued instructions to landlords.

It is not a landlord’s responsibility, nor is it advisable, to give tenants advice on personal hygiene or medical advice. Also a landlord does not need to know (nor has a right to know) a tenant’s medical details.

If a landlord or his agent or appointed contractor needs to visit the property for some “essential” reason, the landlord, agent or contractor would need to know whether the house is under self-isolation (not why or by whom it was started) and when isolation either started or is likely to end.
