Guidance on admission to care homes from the community updated

The guidance in England on admission to care homes from the community has been updated. Annex K now provides further details on the testing process and potential isolation on arrival in a care home.

This guidance is for care homes, local health protection teams, local authorities, clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) and registered providers of accommodation for people who need personal or nursing care.

It sets out how to:

  • admit and care for residents safely
  • protect care home staff
