Government ease visiting rules for care homes and nursing homes
From 8th March our residents will be allowed to hold hands with a regular indoor visitor under new Government plans to ease lockdown restrictions in England. Visitors will be required to take a Covid-19 lateral flow test before entry and must wear PPE.
Konrad Czajka said: “These new guidelines are a positive development and a welcome step closer to normality. It will also come as welcome news to residents and families who have been kept apart over this past year. Allowing regular close contact, even under the new conditions, will be of great benefit to residents' mental health and wellbeing. It has been heart-breaking for families and we look forward to welcoming them and seeing them regularly visit their loved ones again.
“I think at this time the balance of the rules is right. The Government has taken a cautious approach being led by the data and as more information confirms the efficacy of the vaccines and we see cases and hospitalisations in the community fall, hopefully they can then look at going further.”
