Families and friends to be reunited with loved ones in care homes as visits restart

Care home residents are set to be reunited with friends and family as visits begin again following the publication of new guidance.

The isolating effects of lockdown have been difficult for residents and families, but the rate of community transmission has fallen and care homes can now arrange visits based on new guidance to limit further outbreaks, and protect staff and residents.

These arrangements will be based on the advice set out in new guidance to limit any further outbreaks and protect staff and residents.
