Do renters have any right to deny entry to the property owner during the pandemic?

Also curious about the renter denying tours for future tenants.

    The pandemic grants no special rights in this instance.

    You can't really deny the landlord access--BUT you can demand that he give you sufficient notice about any 'tours' he wants to have for future tenants and limit the number of people you have in your apartment. You can also ASK--not demand--that the landlord and the prospective tenants wear masks and gloves so they are not touching your stuff. I think if you do this nicely enough and without threats of any kind, the landlord will be much more likely to comply. 

    If the landlord has to allow workmen or repairmen to come into your apartment, then you have a right to demand THEY take precautions as well. But you can't say no or prevent them access.

    Renters have no additional 'rights' unless actioned into law where you live in the world... as a tenant you need to be given the correct legal noticeby the landlord, you can certainly require anyone entering your home to wash their hands and wear a mask and come to your home within reasonable agreed hours

    Nope - as long as the required legal notice has been given, the property owner can enter. 

    You can ask him (and anyone else entering) to wear a mask, but you can't deny access.

    You have no rights except to reasonable notice.  You can ASK that they wear a mask.  That's about it.  When you don't own the place, you can't expect rights not in line with the law.

    Not any extra ones than they normally would.  Also no to the tours.  All the LL has ot do is give proper notice.  Period, end of story.

    only if the entry is not reasonable and violating the tenants peaceful enjoyment.

    Renters dont have right to deny entry to the property owners at any time- even during the pandemic!     They can show the place to the future renters, buyers, cleaners, repair men ... Renters can not deny tours for the future tenants either.
