Whilst the Government’s road-map to end Coronavirus restrictions may have been delayed, there are a few things that do change on 21 June, including the following:
Care home visits from 21 June
From 21 June some changes will be made to visits in and out of care homes.
For visits in to care homes, all care home residents will be able to nominate an essential care giver. These essential care givers will be able to visit the care home resident, even if the resident is isolating.
In most cases, residents who go on a visit out of a care home will no longer need to isolate for 14 days when they return. Residents returning from some higher risk visits out of the care home, such as an overnight stay in hospital, will still be required to isolate. Decisions on risk will be made following a risk assessment by the care home for each visit out.
The guidance on care home visiting has been updated.
