ERS delighted to welcome back visitors - 892/2020

December 11, 2020

HMGoG is delighted to announce that, following Public Health advice, Elderly Residential Services are now in a position to welcome back visitors to their facilities.

Visits will be allowed to residents at all ERS sites as from Tuesday 15th December, strictly adhering to safeguarding criteria.

Visits will be allowed as long as there are no confirmed positive cases of COVID-19 in the premises. In line with Public Health recommendations, in the event that more than 1 positive COVID-19 case in a particular ERS site is detected, visiting will be discontinued until the situation is resolved.2

All visitors must follow the new protocol before attending an ERS site:

· Visitors must contact the residential floor in order to book a visit

· Visitors will require a negative COVID-19 swab prior to their visit. Please call 200 41818 and identify yourself as an ERS visitor. The swab test will be carried out between 7.30am and 12.00 noon the day before the booked visit.

· Consent will be required by the Drive-Thru for visitors’ NEGATIVE swab results to be notified to ERS management for the sole purpose of safeguarding the residents during their visit.

Visits will be allowed on Tuesdays and Saturdays, at these times:

o 11 am to 12 pm
o 3 pm to 4 pm
o 6 pm to 7 pm

This will facilitate cleaning and disinfection of the visiting premises in between visits.
