Residential and adult social care services (LSC, Hub)
For our residential and adult social care services, we are following the guidance as follows:
Visitors no longer need to complete a LFT before they come on site, unless they are doing personal care.
Family visits will still take place in bedrooms rather than communal areas and this will be reviewed again as necessary.
Young people having a short break will need to continue to complete an LFT on the day of their visit.
If a staff member is symptomatic, they will need to complete 2 LFT tests 48 hours apart. If both are negative, they can return to work after the 48 hour period. If positive, they will need to self- isolate in the normal way.
Infection control – we shall continue to adhere to PPE guidance of masks, aprons and gloves to be worn (eye protection is optional for personal care).
