New guidance to support safe care home visits during lockdown

All care home residents in England should be allowed to receive visits from their family and friends in a COVID-secure way – with social distancing and PPE.

The guidance will enable care home providers, families and local professionals to work together to find the right balance between the benefits of visiting on wellbeing and quality of life, and the risk of transmission of COVID-19 to social care staff and vulnerable residents.
