Care Home Visits

One nominated person will be able to visit a loved one in a care home from 3 July, Scotland’s health secretary announces.

The Scottish government has published guidance on the phased return of visiting to care homes.

Only care homes where there have been no cases of Covid-19 for 28 days will be able to permit visitors, and the person must wear a face covering and observe physical distancing measures.

Jeane Freeman says the move can be made due to “significant progress” in tackle Covid-19, including an improvement in the number of infections in care homes at the current time.
