COVID-19: Health, safety and wellbeing guidance

Visiting arrangements at Lymehurst

Changes to visiting will commence Monday 11th April.

Although legal Covid-19 restrictions have been lifted in the wider population, we are still seeing high rates of community transmission and an increase in outbreaks in care homes.

Many people are also displaying more symptoms that are causing illness, and sadly, in some cases death.

Despite the lifting of restrictions, due to the higher risk nature of health and social care settings, we would appreciate it if you could adhere to the following infection, prevention, control measures.

Our number one priority is to keep residents and staff as safe as possible. Good IPC practice helps keep everyone safe, not only from Covid-19 but also from other infectious illnesses such as norovirus.

Access inside the care home

  • You will no longer need to take a LFT or book an appointment
  • Ensure you wear your type IIR mask correctly at all times (you will be provided with a mask on your arrival).
  • Please ensure your hands are washed and sanitised.
  • Visitors should not enter the care home if they are feeling unwell, even if they have tested negative for COVID-19, are fully vaccinated and have received their booster. Transmissible viruses such as flu, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and norovirus can be just as dangerous to care home residents as COVID-19. If visitors have any symptoms that suggest other transmissible viruses and infections, such as cough, high temperature, diarrhoea or vomiting, they should avoid the care home until at least 5 days after they feel better.

Thank you for your co-operation.
