Adult social care investment to continue coronavirus protections

People in care homes or those being cared for at home will benefit from an extra £250 million to continue to protect them from Covid-19 transmission.

Made up of £142.5 million infection control funding and £108.8 million for testing, the fund will help protect people in adult social care by continuing to meet the cost of rigorous infection prevention and control measures, as restrictions in wider society are eased, and supporting rapid, regular testing of staff.
