Visits will initially be restricted to 1 half hour visit per Resident per week. Timeslots will be available to pre-book on our website. It is most important for social distancing and infection control reasons that visits are attended in a timely manner. There cannot be any `overrun` of time. This will enable Staff members of Tusker House to sanitize the area between visits.
Visitor numbers will be based upon Families ensuring that only safe family `bubbles` visit at any one time. It will be the responsibility of the person booking the visit to list all visitors and their contact details and consent to Tusker House sharing this information with Public Health England for tracing purposes if required. All family members should take full responsibility for safe social distancing and PPE (Personal Protection Equipment), that they feel appropriate given their family connection. This precaution should be taken in addition to the latest Government guidelines on social distancing and family visits. Tusker House take no responsibility for groups of visitors not adhering to visiting policy. Visitors will be restricted to 3 family members unless Government restrictions suggest otherwise.
Visitors are reminded to sanitize hands on entry and exit of the visitors` room doorway. Hand sanitizer will be made available.
