UK Government Advice
The guidance released for Scotland follows the First Minister’s Parliamentary COVID-19 statement from March 31st 2022 relating to further population-based guidance and measures to stem the flow of transmission of the Omicron variant of SARS-CoV-2. The letter introduces two new statutory Health and Social Care Standards to strengthen rights for people living in adult care homes to have visits and care from their loved ones.
There are no nationally set direct restrictions on visiting in care homes.
We expect and encourage providers to facilitate visits wherever possible, and to do so in a risk-managed way.
