Pilot Scheme Launched to Test Care Home Visitors

The Government has today launched a pilot scheme which will see family and friends of care home residents being tested to enable more meaningful visits.

The pilot will begin in areas with lower transmission rates, such as Hampshire and Devon and will see regular testing offered to one family member or friend per resident.
