Staff testing to be extended to sheltered housing & care at home

The Scottish Government has announced it will commence testing of staff in sheltered housing on 11th January and testing of care at home staff from 18th January.  The criteria for testing in some settings will be that a supported person is visited at least twice a week and that the member of staff comes within 1 metre of the person they are caring for.  This was set out in the Cabinet Secretary’s recent letter.
