Weekly Covid-19 tests now available for all our Bristol care workers
Premier Homecare makes weekly Covid-19 test kits available to all Bristol care workers and office staff
We’re pleased to announce Premier Homecare is now offering weekly Covid-19 tests to its Bristol care workers, including office staff and Live-In carers.
All Premier Homecare staff are to be given Covid-19 self-testing kits each week, which can be used quickly and easily at home.
These self-testing kits give full results usually within 48 hours, and any positive results will mean a member of staff will then automatically self-isolate for the required 14-day period, to ensure there is no spread of the virus.
This weekly testing option offers an extra layer of safety for both carers and clients, and here at Premier Homecare our commitment to providing a Covid-safe care environment remains as one of the main priorities in our day-to-day operations.
All of the other well-established Covid-19 safety measures are still firmly in place, including:
Full provision of PPE to all carers and office staff
Social distancing during all client calls and office visits
Extra sanitisation of touchpoints for additional cleanliness
Hand washing routines are maximised on a daily basis
We also ask that all visitors to clients’ homes are kept at a minimum during December, to reduce the possibility of Covid-19 spreading further amongst our other vulnerable clients in Bristol.
The additional measures above will be ongoing and in place until full vaccination has been rolled out across Bristol and the wider UK, and until Government advise otherwise.
