  • Ensure that you and all employees have had basic training relevant to COVID-19
  • Basic training should include training in “Standard Precautions” , in particular hand hygiene, respiratory hygiene and cough etiquette and in “Transmission Based Precautions (Contact, Droplet & Airborne)” including the appropriate use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) See below for further information on these
  • Ensure that anyone visiting a client has access to alcohol hand rub and any personal equipment required to ensure that visits to clients are carried out in a manner that is safe for the client and for the visitor
  • You and all staff should be made aware of the early signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and how to recognise these and whom to alert if you have a concern
  • Please find the most up to date guidance here:
  • Staff members should be made aware that it is mandatory that if they are unwell and have symptoms of COVID-19 such as cough, temperature or shortness of breath, or if they are a contact of someone with COVID-19, they should not attend a meeting with a client and should notify their employer and ring their GP for further instructions. Neither you nor your staff should visit a client’s home/work place if you are unwell or have symptoms of COVID-19
