I am delighted to announce that all resident and staff swabs came back clear during the past week.

We have decided that because of the control measures already in place, we have decided to test residents on a monthly basis and staff on a weekly basis. This decision is under constant review and will be reviewed and amended should events dictate in the future.

Thanks to Lindsay and Gemma for undertaking the training to complete the testing, thereby ensuring that the testing is carried out by individuals who the residents know and trust.

Whilst we are delighted by the results to date, Lindsay and all staff will be as vigilant as ever to keep our residents and staff as safe as possible during the pandemic.

Due to a lot of hard work and effective management, this means that since the outbreak of the pandemic NO positive results of either residents or staff have been recorded.

Thanks to everyone, your efforts have been an inspiration to so many.
