Is it a risk to share flannels between residents during a pandemic? | QCS

What is your view on the use of sharing flannels between all the residents? Particularly during the COVID 19 Pandemic.

My view is that single use wipes should be used. Residents shouldn’t be sharing flannels at all irrespective of covid or not. If a resident wishes to use a flannel then it should be labelled, own use only and washed at the highest heat possible following the laundry care instructions.
