From 4th May, FOUR visits per week are facilitated with visitors limited to 2 per resident at a time. Visiting takes place 7 days per week. However residents who are not vaccinated should be informed of the specific risk to them of seeing additional people in the absence of vaccination.
Organised outings including appointments for residents by car should generally be risk assessed, weighing up with necessity versus the risks. In each case, an individual risk assessment is completed and overseen by the Person in Charge in order to eliminate any identified risk.
Visiting by the Resident to another house
If the resident is absent for less than 12 hours and in the absence of any reported unintended exposure there is generally no requirement for the resident to restrict movement to their room on their return.
Where the resident has been away for more than 12 hours (typically an overnight stay), the resident need not be asked to restrict movement to their room on their return from an overnight stay unless (a) they are known to have been in contact with a person who has travelled outside of Ireland in the 14 days prior to the contact (b) are known to have been in contact with a person suspected or known to have symptoms of COVID-19.
Visitors must accept personal responsibility with respect to the risk that they may be inadvertently be exposed to infection during the visit and that their safety depends in a large measure on their behaviour during the visit. Equally, visitors may unknowingly pass Covid-19 onto residents.
