Update – 20 March 2020

On 14 March the Scottish Government issued advice to care home providers that residents should be subject to social distancing during the Coronavirus outbreak to reduce the risk to them as they are in the high risk category. As a result, we were advised that visits to care home facilities must be reduced to essential only and that residents should stay in their rooms where possible.
