• Staff were wearing PPE in line with government guidance and designated areas were set up within the service for staff to remove and apply PPE.

• The service supported regular contact and communication with families. This included the use of technology, arranging safe outings in the local community and visits in the garden, whilst following social distancing guidance.

• People’s care plans reflected the support required to manage risks associated with the Covid-19 virus and provided staff information on how to maintain people’s wellbeing.
