The workers were involved in repairing the damage caused to the home of Tracey Coulter in the Shankill area on Sunday.
"The Housing Executive can confirm that its workers have been asked to leave that specific area," a spokesperson said.
"The safety of our staff is paramount and we are liaising with the PSNI and community representatives in an effort to have the issue resolved as quickly as possible."
Ms Coulter had been involved in a high-profile campaign to expose what she claims as UDA involvement in drug dealing and blamed loyalist paramilitaries for setting fire to her home.
She said the workers were not able to finish the repair work because of the intimidation.
She blamed the UDA for the latest incident and called on unionist representatives in the area to condemn those responsible.
A top loyalist was convicted last Friday of head-butting her during a confrontation over drugs in July. He is due to be sentenced in January.
A police spokesperson said they were unable to comment on the personal security of any individuals.
They added: "However, if we receive information that a person's life may be at risk we will inform the relevant person accordingly."
