Our current guidelines for visiting are:

  • Each resident is to be limited to three nominated visitors who can visit regularly.
  • This will be in addition to all residents being able to nominate an essential care giver who can visit for companionship or for care needs. In line with the system that was in place earlier in the pandemic, the nominated visitors should remain the same, barring an exceptional change in circumstances.
  • Visits at the end of life will be supported.
  • those they are visiting to undertake regular LFD testing, and receive a negative LFD on the day of the visit
  • those they are visiting to have had their COVID-19 vaccinations including booster if eligible

When going out of the care home residents should:

  • avoid visiting people they do not usually spend time with regularly
  • avoid visits out that involve mixing with a large number of people indoors
  • have had a COVID-19 booster before taking part in a visit out of the care home if eligible, unless exempt
