According to the latest Government guidance, care home residents are now able go on visits out of care homes without the need to quarantine for 14 days on their return.

Visits of all kinds are now permitted. For each visit, the care home manager will conduct a risk assessment. Anyone taking a resident on a visit must test negative using a Lateral Flow Device (LFD) test.

Protective measures, such as the wearing of masks in indoors places and frequent handwashing, are still advised.

The only instances where 14 days isolation on return is required is when there is an overnight stay in hospital or, when from the manager’s risk assessment, the visit is deemed high risk.
