B) Coronavirus (COVID-19): Providing home care

The guidance for those providing personal care to people living in their own home has been updated to state that anyone experiencing coronavirus symptoms can now be tested, which includes individuals receiving home care.

C) COVID-19: Guidance on shielding and protecting people defined on medical grounds as extremely vulnerable

The guidance for people who are clinically extremely vulnerable and have been shielding has been updated. The government have set out a series of steps relaxing the shielding guidance which will come into effect on 6 July and 1 August. If you are a QCS customer, all policies will be updated to reflect the changes.

D) Coronavirus (COVID-19): Reducing risk in adult social care

On 19 June a new document was published to support social care providers to assess and reduce risk to their workforce during the coronavirus pandemic. The Adult Social Care Risk Reduction Framework focuses specifically on how employers can support workers with factors which may make them more vulnerable to infection or adverse outcomes from COVID-19 to make decisions about their risks in the workplace. For QCS customers, we have added a new policy to the dashboard which can be read along with the ‘Re-opening your service’ COVID-Secure documents in the resource centre and the Risk Assessment templates for Vulnerable Groups.
