Visiting restrictions eased in Wales

The Welsh Government has eased visiting restrictions in care homes.

The key changes are:

  • To enable visitors to take Lateral Flow Device (LFD) tests away from the care home, at the provider’s discretion 
  • To clarify that visitors do not need to be seated or socially distanced when in a resident’s room or designated visiting room
  • To ease restrictions around gifts, including food and drink. These may now be shared between visitors and residents, and no longer need to be kept in sealed, unopened containers.
