Dear Colleague

The eLearning Team would like to advise you of a change in our Navigating Through Covid-19 online course regarding guidance on the use of IIR face mask for the people we support.

Please see update below:

Residents in a care home are not required to wear a IIR or face covering within the care home, which is first and foremost their own home. It is a residents choice whether to wear one as an additional layer of protection, and at all times the needs and choices of care home residents should be the primary consideration.

Click on the link below for full guidance.

Staff are not required to retake this course.

Kind regards

Dana
