Update – December 2022 – Visitors
From 22nd December 2022, DHSC have revised the COCID19 supplement to the infection and prevention and control resource guidance for adult social care.
The guidance is updated to enable care homes to initiate their own risk assessments and determine outbreak measures should they feel able to do so.
- PPE Guidance – universal face masking has been removed from the guidance. This will come into effect at Greystones when we have no suspected or confirmed cases of COVID19. If COVID19 has been detected in the home, mask wearing will be a requirement until the home is fully clear of the virus, this will be determined by the required testing routine.
