DHSC extends measures to cover length of lockdown

Restrictions to protect the Island's most vulnerable are being extended for the remaining time of the current lockdown.

Non-essential visitors aren't allowed to residential homes, dementia care residential units, or to learning disability community homes.

The measures were originally introduced for seven days at the start of the circuit breaker, and have been implemented to minimise the risk of coronavirus transmission.

The Department of Health and Social Care has also extended the temporary closure of Adult Social Care day services.

The measure applies to older people’s day services, dementia care day services and learning disability day services across the Island; learning disability respite care facilities will be available on a case-by-case basis, to meet assessed essential needs.   

Current restrictions will be kept under regular review and families kept informed by the Adult Social Care team.
