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.
