Current visiting restrictions

We want to keep residents in care homes safe from coronavirus.

Care home visiting guidance has been updated following changes as set out in the national roadmap for easing lockdown restrictions effective from 12 April 2021. Please use the following hyperlinks below to access the updated national and local guidance:

Our local guidance reflects that the level of risk from the virus in different areas, or indeed individual care homes, may vary at any given time.  If there is a need to restrict visiting to essential visits only in a specific part of Staffordshire, affected care home settings will receive an email from ascincidentmanagement@staffordshire.gov.uk to their nominated email address.  The email will be identified with the heading “For Urgent Action: Change of Advice for Visiting in Care Home Settings”. You should reply to the email to acknowledge receipt of it.   A further email will be sent when restrictions can be lifted.

We will also publish any restrictions on this page.
