Coronavirus (COVID-19) update - Nov 2021

The Government has brought in legislation requiring anyone who enters a care home from 11 November to prove that they have had a full course of COVID-19 vaccinations or have a valid medical exemption. 

The rules apply to: 

  • Care home staff and volunteers
  • Professionals including GPs, hairdressers and beauticians
  • Anyone over 18 years of age

The rules do not apply to:

  • Emergency service workers or those providing emergency assistance 
  • Everyone carrying out urgent repair work
  • Visiting friends, family and essential care givers

The Government policy can be found here, along with the guidance on demonstrating evidence of vaccination.
